Sno^v to depth of eight inches 
or more fell over this section 
of Minnesota during the week- 
end. At the same time the 
mercury went down to sub-zero, 
depths, the lowest being Mon- 
day morning, when local ther- 
mometers registered from 25 to 
30 below zero. Many side roads 
are blockaded, but the main 
trunk roads were opened im- 
mediately after the storm, and 
auto traffic is now going on as 
usual. Snowfall and road con- 
ditions are reported much worse 
in Dakota, and parts of central 
and southern Minnesota. 

Just as a reminder that an 
occasional snow and below zero 
temperatures are not so bad, 
records of last winter , show 
there were two weeks in Janu- 
ary 1936 when the mercury 
was below zero every day. Dur- 
ing February, . the mercury was 
below zero every day, and went 
>bove that mark for a short 
time only five days of that 
mWth. The lowest tempera- 
ture recorded last February was 
51 below. Judging by these

the wrong fellow got mixed up inN 
the trap and almost paid for the 
intrusion with his life. A little 
moose calf wandered into the trap 
line. One of its feet was tightly 
clamped in the steel jaws.- The 
calf was taken to the Knutson 
farm, where ' the injured leg/ 
partly frozen, was- properly treat- 
ed and thawed out. The incjdent, , 
was reported to the game warden,

Washington— On the eve of the 
opening of a new congress, the sev- 
',„,.. enty-fifth, there is 

Hullabaloo grea t hullabaloo 
and Clamor and clamor about 
social and eco- 
nomic legislation and particularly 
about the alleged necessity for con- 
stitutional amendments giving con- 
gress more power to deal with these 
problems. Much of the noise eman- 
ates from minorities, highly organ- 
ized pressure groups, and \t is diffi- 
cult, therefore, to tell exactly what 
the attitude of the country, as a 
whole, may be. 

There are those both in congress 
and out who contend that the over- 
whelming vote for President Roose- 
velt's re-election constituted a man- 
date for immediate action on a num- 
ber of these highly delicate and dif- 
ficult questions. There are others 
whose contention is that the great 
vote given President Roosevelt was, 
in fact, a tribute to his personal 
popularity and that it was in no 
way ■ connected with the various 
problems that are now before the 
country in individual capacity. What- 
ever the answer' to these contending 
forces, the fact remains that we 
are due to hear something of them 
on the floors of the house and senate 
in' the next few months. 

One of the jthings about which we 
are hearing, thany, many words at 
the moment j is a proposal for an 
amendment to the Constitution pro- 
hibiting child labor. It is the argu- 
ment r that such ah amendment" 
should be annexed to the Constitu- 
tion and that it should give congress 
additional authority to enact legisla- 
tion setting forth the details of this 
new type of prohibition. | 

Yet, while all of this rpving and 
raging is going on, how many people 
are there who are aware of the 
fact that a constitutional amend- 
ment doing this very thing has been 
pending before the states for a little 
more than twelve years? How many 
people are there who recall that 
..this amendment has been ratified by 
twenty-four -states? Whatever their 
recollection is, it is a fact and it 
remains a fact that to all intents 
and purposes, enough states have 
refused to ratify the amendment, 
to kill it off. 

William Green, president of the 
American Federation 'of Labor, be- 
ing alive to what he considers the 
meaning of the recent huge vote for" 
President Roosevelt, has attempted 
to revive the fight for ratification 
of that child labor amendment above 
mentioned. He has written to the 
heads of the various state and local 
labor groups urging them to work 
for favorable action on the amend- 
ment in the states that have hereto- 
fore rejected it. ■' 

, * • • 

This brings up a new legal ques- 
tion. Stated succinctly, the question 

.. / , , is whether a state 

New Legal legislature that 
/ Question has once rejected 
.a proposition to' 
amend the Constitution can reverse 
itself and approve the resolution 
after having once killed it. Mr. 
Gr.een, contends that this is possible. 
The American Bar association takes 
a contrary view. ' 

So, we are confronted with a prob- 
lem within a problem and- one that 
is likely to be distorted and twisted 
and misrepresented by those in- 
terests- that have sought for a long 
time to make the Constitution ap- 
pear outmoded. To become attached 
to the Constitution, an amendment 
must be ratified under the terms of 
the Constitution itself, by three- 
fourths of the states^ That is thirty-' 
six. Since twelve more states must 
ratify, there is likely to be "C hard 
drive^td gain some of the remaining 
states; and to bring about reversal of 
positions already takers It nearly 
always happens in / "drives" that 
there Is much' loose mournings and 
many: unwarranted and unjustified 
statements. It 'probably will be so 
in this instance and the country 
must be on guard to sift the truth 
from the propaganda and. must be 
prepared to- make up its mind 
I whether it desires to place in the 
.Constitution a hard and fast rule 
that no child under eighteen years 
of age may be allowed to work gain- 

For: the sake of the record, here- 
with is the language of the proposed 
amendment that is now pending: 

"The congress shall have power 
to limit, 'regulate and / prohibit trie 
labor | of persons grinder eighteen 
years; of age. The^power of the sev- 
eral states is^unimpaired by this 
article excepr that the operation of 
state laws shall be suspended to the 
extent necessary' to give effect to 
legislation enacted by [ the con- 
gress;" / . !'.'."/ 
From these words, it will be seen 
that an/attempt is made to/give 
congress greater power' over the 
rights of states to legislate for them- 
selves. Such a purport brings up in 
,my rriind the old question of wheth- 
er a's'tate or the federal government 
shall be supreme. There certainly 


are times, there are circumstances 
and there are conditions in which 
the federal government alone can 
deal with | problems better; than 
states can deal with|them individual- 
ly. But after all, conditions are not 
the same in any two states of the 
Union and it seems to me that the 
states ought to give careful thought 
to any proposition that takes away 
from them forever! whatever rights 
are left to them under the Constitu- 
tion. They ought to be free as far as 
they may" be to '■ handle their own 
problems on the : basis of local re- 
quirements.! And this is] written, let 
me emphasize, not in opposition to 
any proposal that would abolish 
child labor. 

The country cannot know definite- 
ly until President Roosevelt ' deliv- 
ers his message to 
the new congress, 
dealing with the 
state of the Union, 
exactly what his position is going to 
be on the so-called social welfare 
problems of] the country. This is a 
general category and involves such 
things as the so-called social secur-

For example, the present social

provisions. While basically they are 
designed to protect against the suf-

Shipwreck is one thing— but shipwreck on the African coast: is 
^hother, involving perils far more horrible than anything Old 
Father Neptune has to offer. / j . I 

It (was on May 25, 1903, that Chris Broderseni signed as a messroym 
steward on the steamer Lulu Bohlen sailing out of Hamburg, Germany, 
for the west coast of Africa.. After in uneventful trip] with stops j at 
Madeira and Palma in the Canary/islands, the ship arrived at Mon- 
rovia, Liberia, on June 16. There they took on 40 Kroo boys and sailed 
that same afternoon'for Cape Palmas on the Liberiah coast. But the 
ship never reached Cape Palmas— and neither did any of the crew. 

On the Rocks, Twenty Miles Off Shore! 

At 11:30 that night the! Lulu Bohlen ran on the rocks, £0 
miles ont from shore, off the mouth of the Sangoien river. They 
didn't know it then, but fires lighted by the treacherous natives 
had led the ship oft its course, and they were in for trouble. The 
passengers; including abbnt forty women and children, took off in 
boats manned by most of the crew. Thcr captain, second officer, 
chief steward and a few others remained behind on the wrecked 

Following the. captain's instructions, the boats headed for the trading 
post at River Cess, 60 miles away. They drifted all night close by 
the steamer' and started for River Cess at daybreak. They reached it 
that evening — to find that the natives had already started looting the 
Lulu Bohlen and had part of the cargo drawn upon shore near the post. 
From -that moment on, life was a horrible grisly dream for- the pas- 
sengers and crew, of the wrecked ship. The minute he boats were 
beached they, were surrounded! by a horde of natives, who snatched 
the small belongings the- passengers had saved from ^he wreck and

Week of Terror at the Post 

"The natives swarmed around the post day and night," says 
Chris. "We had to watch our boats incessantly, as they kept try- 
ing to smash them to, prevent us from getting • away. After 
about two days, some of the crew started back to the ship to 
get the captain- and those who had remained with him. That 
left only 16 of the crew to protect the women and children, 
And never in my life shall I forget the week that tallowed. "" 
Day by day the natives became more restive and more threatening. 
Again and again the trader gave them more gin to keep them from 
attacking the post and slaughtering its inhabitants. Anyone who ven- 
tured! outside the gates now, was stripped of all his belongings and

Whatever of his clothes took fancy of the blacks. When the gin gave 
out, the trader was forced to part with other articles of his stock. Before 
the vj>eek had passed he:. had lost everything he owned. And still! the 
natives threatened and demanded more. | 

Things had come to a critical point. The natives, with no prospeet 
of more loot from the trading post, were about to attack and- slaughter 
those, inside. Then, in the nick of time, a German steamer, the Kurt 
Woermann, hove in sight. Inside the post, the trader ran up the distress 
signal — the company flag, turned upside down and tied] in a;*knot — and 
the steamer sent a landing party to investigate. 

Rest of Crew Found in Sad State. 

The Kurt Woermann took passengers arid crew of the Lulu Bohlen 
aboard, and then proceeded down the coast to look -fori the rest of the 
crewj— those who had set out in one of the boats to bring back the captain 
and those others who had remained behind on the wrecked ship. 
| "We sighted them,!' says Chris, "about 30- miles from the 
wreck," and the landing party that went atter them found them 
in terrible state. They had barely got outside of the river month 
when their boat was wrecked in a heavy surf. They swam to 
shore, only to be met by a crowd of natives; who followed themi 
stole everything they had, including most of their clothes. Some 
of the natives even bit the plumper ones in the arms and chest 
until the more civilized' blacks drove them off." 1 
Those fellows never had reached the Lulu Bohlen.j They had : fol- 
lowed the shore line for more than~a week, walking first, 'then stag- 
gering and close to exhaustion. For the entire time they had had 
nothing to eat, for their supplies had been lost when! the boat over- 
turned in the surf. ; . t . { 

The steamer Kurt Woermann proceeded on down the coast. When 
it reached the scene of the wreck, they found the Lulu Bohlen, her keel 
broken hi the middle and her decks awash, but no sign of the captain, 
the mate, chief steward, or any of the rest. The Kurt IWoermann 
moved on down the cctist. I i 

At Sinoe,' they.found the captain, but none of the others. The captain 
had paid two natives to take them to Sinoe in! a canoel That was the 
last he had seen of them. "They found the missing men at last in a 
native kraal," says Chris. ' "Instead of taking them to Sinoe, the blacks 
in the canoe had put them on shore at the mercy of oth'erinatives. They 
barejy escaped being made into pepper soup. We got back to Germany 
abpuf the end, of July, and a month later British, French and German 
gunboats shelled the coast villages to punish the natives for wrecking 
ships — and for cannibalism!" ■ I ■

which makes it possible for non-

B jnyan Created Lakes 

Elk and Torch lakes, the beau* 
tiful finger lakes that stretch par- 
allel for miles along the shore of 
Lake Michigan I near Elk Rapids, 
date back to the days of Paul 
Bun; 'an, according to the old lum- 
ber)' icks. . 'j - 

Lake Michigan, they say, was 
scooped out by i the mighty Paul, 
to be used 'as a) log pond. Instead 
of skidding the logs into a stream 
and floating tHem down to hia 
pond Paul wjould hitch onto a 
section of la'ndj and drag it over 
to the lake, log off the timber, 
and then haul | the section back. 

One day Paul hooked onto a 
particularly heavy timbered sec-

Here's Simple Way 
to Ease a Cold 

The Term "Countless" 

Despite the fact that- the diction- 
aries; define "countless" as, "In- 
capable of. being counted^ or estj- 
xnatetd," general usage admits of a 
broader definition. Few thingsNipon 
this earth can not be actually count- 
ed by the : scientists in their labc-^ 
r a tones; hence, the term "count- 
less":, in its strict sense, is rarely 
applicable.! We pan still refer to 
"countless'* stars in. the heavens, 
and ["countless" "drops of water in 
the sea, bjit the term is employed, 
and by reputable authorities, in the 
sense, "that can not be readily 
counted orjestimated." This usage 
necessarily be described: as 
loose," but it has excellent author- 
ity.— Literary Digest. 

House Centipedes 
The house centipede occurs in 
public buildings and houses, pre- 
ferring warm, moist situations in 
basements, greenhouses, bath- 
rooms, etc. It preys' on other in- 
sects and is regarjded by Herrick's 
"Insects Injurious to the House- 
old" as not highly venomous.r The 
' is, especially the ; larger 

forms, are. reputed to be 
poisonouXHo man.' - Their bite vs? 
'ries in effebt, depending on the' sus- 
ceptibility of the person." The same 
authority concludes that the centi- 
pedes occuirtag.itfthe United States 
are not to be considered .seriously 
dangerous, though the^larger| spe- 
cies of the Southwest hadxprobablj 
best be avoidec" v 


Maya Breadnut Urged 
for Soutli Florida' 

Try this way.[ Your doctor, we 
know, will endorse it. For it is a 
quick, effective means of combating 
a cold. Ask for Bayer Aspirin by the 
full name at your, druggist's — not 
for "aspirin" alone. 

WASHINGTON. — Breadnut 
trees, close botanical relatives to 
the famous breadfruit trees of the 
South Sea [Islands, are suggested 
as desirable for cultivation in 
southern Florida, by Dr. O. F. 
Cook of the United States Depart- 
ment of Agriculture., 

The trees recommended by Dr. 
Cook come from Yucatan, and 
were knownTmd usedj by the Maya 
people who built Amejrica's highest 
native culture centuries before 
white men came. Southern Florida 
is climatically Very similar to 
the breadnut's jnati|ve land, and I 
geologically it is almost identical,' 
being underlain with a porous coral-! 
limestone formation. -. 

The Maya breadnut" tree has a 
large, starchy seed which is gath- 
ered for food for human beings, 
and is reliihed also by live stock. 
Roasted or boiled, it tastes very 
much like the Spanish chestnut. 

Even more important, Dr.! Cook 
suggests, ' may }>e trie use of its 
leaves as pasture for cattle, which 
often have! a hard title picking up 
a living off the thin grasses ' and 
other ground -vegetation' in Florida.

Two Quick-Acting, Quick-Dissolving 
Bayer Aspirin Tablets with a Glass of Water 

The modern way to 
ease atold is this: Two 
Bayer Aspirin tablets 
-the moment yoii feel a 
cold coming. onl Then 
if necessary, according to 
actions in the box. 
At the same time, if you have a 

4 throat, crush and dissolve 
BAYER tablets in one-tjiird 
glass of water. And gargle with this 
mixture twice. 

Thej Bayer Aspirin you take in- 
ternally will act to combat fever 
and the pains . which usually ac- 
company colds. The gargle will act 
as. a medicinal gargle to provide al- 
most instant relief from rawness 
andjpain. It is really marvelous; for 
it acts like a local anesthetic on the 
irritated membrane of your throat.

With upwards of 310,000,000 iri : 
federal aid funds as -one iof the 
benefits at stake, N. !W. Eb3berg, 
state Icommissioner of. highways, 
in his | biennial letter of legislative 
recommendations to Governor El- 
mer A. Benson, today placed, the. 
deterniination of Minnesota's fu- 
ture highway policy directly in 
the hands of the people of the 
state ^nd their elected represen- 
tatives. ; 

Commissionei' Elsberg's [ report 
and recommendations were! partic- 
ularly pertinent inasmuch as only 
last week, the U. S. Department 
of Agriculture allotted to : Minne- 
sota $5,537,023; in federal highway 
funds | for 1937, most of which 
cannot be obtained, however, un- 
less the state matches the; federal 
monej-j with state funds that are 
not now either available' or in 
sight. I A similar amount I will be 
at stake in 1938, before janother 
Legislature meets. i 

"The- public and' the I legisla- 
ture," | Commissioner Elsberg's 
recommendations to Governor Ben- 
son stated, "must soon choose be- 
tween the. abandonment 1 of a 
normal highjvay improvement 
program or the adoption of a 
schedule of motor vehicle and 
motor fuel taxes high enough to 
meet the cost of such a program." 

The ; commissioner adhered to 
his statement made during De- 
cember that He would make no 
effort to influence the legislature 
as to what policy it should choose. 
He did: advise,! however, that leg- 
islation be enacted which ' would 
put the highway department on a 
pay-as-you-go jbasis, so that road 
dollars] will go for roads i instead 
of to pay interest on bond indebt- 
edness. '. ] 

A pay-as-yo r-go policy, ! he said, 
only can • be [accomplished either 
by eliminating road construction 
or by increasing current revenues 
to match federal aid funds, meet 
state obligations on other federal 
funds, and provide state funds for 
roads on which no federal aid is 
available. i 

The report Ipoints out that the 
1933 legislature added 4,500 miles 
of county roads to the state trunk 
system, j increasing its mileage 65 
per cent, and ijt the same time re- 
duced motor vehicle licenses and 
left gasoline taxes unchanged. 
This provided |no means for "fin- 
ancing the improvement and main- 
tenance ! of the enlarged trunk 
system,'! and none has yet been 
provided, the report adds; at the 
same time setting forth that the 
1935 legislature met the ! critical 
situation by authorizing [further 
borfd issues to finance matching of 
federal aid. 

Commissioner Elsberg cited 
that bond charges now take "more 
than one-fourth of the current in- 
come of the highway department 
every year." He advised the gov- 
ernor that complete details of the 
financial problems of the : depart- 
ment will be! presented i to the 
proper legislative committees, but 
expressed it as his belief that the 
"interests of | the motorists and 
the public will be best served by 
making \a substantial increase in 
current revenues for the 1 trunk 
highway, system." 

How this can be accomplished 
is a matter * ' " " ■• 


Tax delinquency threatens the 
extinction of I. loon government in 
many Mrtti^Mf'Minnesota counties 
and is! one of the most important 
questions the] state must face in 
tackling the tax problem, the inter- 
im commissiqn on taxes said Sat- 
urday in another ^hapter of its re- 
port to the legislature. 

Total unpaid ^property taxes 
amount to $9 2,287,000, of which a 
major part w 11 n£ver be collected, 
the commission said. Much of it 
represents lsnd which the state 
will acquire in the next two years. 

Criticizing the practice of bar- 
gain settlements, the commission, 
which is headed by Senator Fred J. 
Miller of Little Falls, recommends 
that the legislature "abandon the 
practice of g: -anting tax bargain 
settlements". No longer, says this 
group, should privileges be grant- 
ed whereby eld unpaid taxes can 
be settled fpi[ a fraction of their 
original price] without penalty and 
interest: "leniency which enables 
a property o\vnerlto escape pay- 
ment undermines the stability of 
government i self.f' \ 

But, the reiort says: "Until non- 
productive lards are taken from 
the tax rolls or assessed on the 
basis of what they can pay, until 
over-lapping units of government 
are abolished or consolidated, un- 
til costly but I isolated roads aban- 
doned, until tjhesej and other far- 
reaching chsngea are made in 
many of these northern • distress 
counties, delii queiicy will "continue 
to flourish." I 

On a per capiti] basis, the bur- 
den on property by the state tax 
levy is the s£cond u highest among 
35 states using this form of taxa- 
tion and ''the conclusion is justified 
that general rroperty in Minnesota 
carries a heavier aggregate burden 
than property in neighboring 
states/' the report said. 

Reasons for delinquency are giv- 
en as: Excassive tax harden, de- 
pression conditions which reduced 
individual inebmej the tendency to 
abandon unprofitable land hold- 
ings, anticipation jof bargain tax 
sale laws, inadeouate laws with re- 
ferences to Enforcement of tax 
liens, and -special assessments.

now under way, car 

for legislative de- 
the commissioner 
said, abiding by his earlier asser-' 
tion that the highway department 
will make no I campaign for rev- 
enues, j 

Commissioner Elsberg stressed 
the importance of growing public 
demand for safer roads.^separated 
traffic lanes, separated crossings, 
widening andj straightening of 
older highways and greater sight 
distances on curves and hills. 

Two specific measures' were 
suggested in the interest of safe-' 
ty: first, adequate provision for 
financing and maintenance j of the 
drivers license! division and en- 
forcement of the law that created 
it; and second, legislation to meet 
the growing traffic problem pro- 
duced by increasing- numbers of 
"house-trailcrs.'f In this I regard 
be urged that regulations be 
adopted imposing minimum stan- 
dards of construction, . brakes; 
clearance! lights) rear vision, and 
couplings: | I 

He aisb cited the employment 
provided | by road construction, 
urged : great ] study and I care 
in addition of any more routes to 
the trunk' system in view ;of the 
present situation, and asked that 
authprity|be given the department 
to borrow from] available; .state 
funds to avoid temporary financial 
embarassment if the legislature 
extends the time for payment of 
license! fees. 

The report\warned that refunds: 
of gasoline taxes have spread to' 
so many | fields' and reached such' 
large sums that these laws should 
be strengthened td\prevent : abuse 
of the privileges originally intend-: 
ed. It urged further legislative:

and car owners are urged to get

i $7.50 minimuhi for Class B pas- 
i senger cars Weighing more than 
2,000 pounds and! a ?5 minimum 
i for lighter rriodell Class A cars, 
j The tax is figured on' a 2.2 per 
cent of j the list price basis. Ten 
per cent is taken off after the 
I first year and 1 15 per cent for each 
| year' thereafter until the minimum 
is reached. | I ' 

Ordinary four I wheel trailers 
will need licenses I again this year 
and two wheel licenses with a 
capacity of moire/ than 1,000 
pounds will have ^/be licensed at 
the rate of $2 per ton or each 
fraction thereof) Two wheel 
trailers,; regardless of capacity, 
used for carrying passengers or 
property ' for hire, also will re- 
quire licenses for: 1937. 

The last date to apply for lic- 
enses is February 15, and after 
that a penalty of 25 cents a day 
for the two days following will 
be charged. Then 50 cents extra 
will be charged each month as a 
penalty during Jjthe next four

Property owners in St. Hilr 
aire and in the local school dis- 
trict will receive a pleasant sur- 
prise when they pay their real 
estate taxes this *year when 
they discover their taxes are 
approximately 30 per cent low- 
er than those paid in 1936. The 
rate for school purposes will be 
35 mills; for village 21 mills, 
the* county rate will be 32.6 
which added to the state levy 
of 12.45 mills makes 101.05 
mills for St. Hilaire as compar- 
ed to 143 in 1936. Both Thief 
River Falls and Goodridge will 
have a higher rate.

Strenuous efforts are being 
put forth" this week by federal 
mediators, state officials and 
others to bring about a settle- 
ment pf the strike of automo- 
bile workers now in progress in 
plants : of General Motors. Union 
officials are marshalling their 
fbrces| for a finish fight in case 
negotiations with the plant 
owners should fail. At present 
some 175,000 workers are out, 
and more are being added daily 
as plants are forced to close for 
lack'ojf material.

Hibbing — A souvenir hunter's

mostl unique Christmas gift. It 
was a large package which con- 
jtained 12 toieces of hotel silver, 
leachj beautifully -wrapped in tissue 
[paper and adorned with colorful 
rsealsi and an ash tray and salt 
'and pepper shakers, all hotel pro- 
perty. With it. came a card bear-

Deer Creek— Setting out from 
his home a few miles west of Wa- 
dena at ten o'clock one morning to 
look! for minks and set traps, Glenn 
Smith became lost in the fog and 
in the evening, carrying a gun ;f.nd 
a sack of traps, wandered into i the 
home of Mrs. Ida Martin at Deer 
Creek. The boy was nearly 'ex- 
hausted and 'so frightened he could 
hardly talk,! but managed to give 
a vague description of the loca- 
tion! of his home.'His search for 
mink was unsuccessful and before 
he knew, he lost his bearings and • 
became hopelessly lost in the heavy 
fog.i Continuing to wander aimless- 
ly, he finally neared Deer Creek 
and 'then scared, tired and hungry, 
approached the home of Mrs. Mar- 
tin, jwhere he [was given food ! and 
. questioned until he could give some 
idea as to who he was and where 
he lived. The boy was taken by. car 
to a place from which he could . 
give directions to his home and 
when at nine o'clock he saw his 
mail box he i was so overjoyed that 
beaming and happy he hurriedly 
ran J to the house. 


Hutchinson— The City of Hutch- 
inson. has found that it harbors a 
prospective underworld gang in a 
group of boys ' who have made a 
game out of breaking street 
lights. It has been revealed that 
there is a ■ secret organization, 
with points! given for tne young- 
sters who make the "best" .rec- 
ords. The irumor has it that 15 
points are 'given' for breaking a 
white way globe (which cost the 
city $25 each) with five points for 
street lights and three points' for 
insulators. Breaking these Valu- 
able objects is a part of the in- 
itiation into the . club, and | any 
member who has not a hundred 
or Iso points to his credit is iCon- 
sidered a "softie". The practice 
has' been going on for several 
weeks, the : lads using hard |hiud 
balls, stones and icy snowballs for 
their purpose. The city council 
has offered ja reward of $5 for in- 
formation which will lead to 1 the 
arrest of the members of | the 
gang, with! good prospects of the 
city going broke_sOon unless ithey 
are apprehended. J .

)REW BODIN, 85, 


!■ ' 

Aridrew Bodin, age 85, an old 
resident of the community east 
of here, died ' Sunday at the 
Petei! iKolseth home where he 
had Imade: his home in later 
years. Mr. Bodin formerly 
owned a farm place south of 
Hazel some years ago. He is 
survived by one son whose pre- 
sent whereabouts are unknown. 
Funeral services were conduct- 
ed today by Rev. M. L. Dahle 
at Clearwater church in Wyan- 



Hastings.— As yet Hastings has 
no ifficial airport but when dense 
fog forced John Wols of the Du- 
Ponjt Aviation company of Minne- 
apo is to land his ship here Satur- 
day 1 , he' did so with little difficulty. 
Much to the surprise of the neigh- 
boring inhabitants he chose a field 
on the John Conzemiua farm for a 
landing place. He set his plane 
down I at four o'clock in the after- 
noon after waging a battle against 
rain and fog since leaving:' South 
Bend,! Indiana about seven o'clock 
in thi; morning. Because of the 
strong wind, the ship was anchored 
to fence posts to keep it from over- 
turning before the pilot could re- 
turn for his plane the next morn- 
ing: following a trip to Minne- 
apolis.' ._, 


The Bray Mutual Fire Insur- 
ance Company of Pennington 
and Red like counties held its 
annual meeting of officers here 
yesterday, j Jan. 13. Owing to 
uncertain j condition of the - 
roads, attendance at the meet- 
ing was. not as large as in some 
former years. Report of the 
secretary, | which will be pub- 
lished soon, shows the company 
is enjoying a very fine busi- 
ness, altho it sustained the 
largest loss this year of any 
year since the company was 
organized.! The largest single 
loss sustained in 1936 was that 
of a church in Games in Red 
Lake county. Despite these 
losses, the company is in flour- 
ishing condition. 

That the members are entire- 
ly satisfied with the manner in 
which its affairs are conducted, 
was, evidenced when the present 
officers, Ed. Aubol, pres.; An- 
ton Peterson, vice pres.; John 
O. Swanson, secretary; John R. • 
Larsen, treasurer; Herman Ort- 
loff, director, and all its terri- 
tory agents' were re-elected with 
.no opposition. 

At the present time the- Bray 
Mutual has about 1700 policies 
in force with a total of over

of Joseph Et. Jaakola, 37, was 
found, frozen near his home in

One of the Best Things 
in Life Is M oral Victory 

To demand victory without „. 
antagonist is to demand something 
with no meaning , .- . H you 
take all the evil out of the world 
you will .remove the- possibility 
\of the best thing in life. That 
does not mean that evil is good. 
What one means by callinga thing 
gootf is that the spirit rests per- 
manently .content with it for I its 
own sake. a . i • 

Evil is pr^jisely that with which 
no spirit-oan rest content;' and 
yet it is the condition, not the 
accidental but the essential condi- 
tion, of what is on and for itself 
the best thing in life, namely, irior 
al victory.— Arcbishop Temple.'

General Strike Threatened 
in General Motors Plants 
*-*• TION flaUy refused to consider 
collective bargaining in its 69 plants 
except through local management. 
Whereupon 300 dele- 
gates^ from those 
plants in ten cities 
met in Flint, Mich., 
and granted to a 
"board of strategy" 
power to order a 
general strike. The 
board is headed by 
Homer Martin, in- 
ternational president 
of the United Auto- 
mobile Workers of 
America, one of the 
. Lewis C. I. O. un- 

ions. Ten of the corporation's plants 
already were closed by sit-down 
strikes and walkouts, and 37,000 of 
its employees were idle. 

Edward. F. McGrady, assistant 
secretary of labor, who has spent 
three months in futile effort to stop 
the maritime walkout on the Pacific 
coast, hurried- back to Washington 
to take a hand in the General Mo- 
tors strike. After, reporting Tp Sec- 
retary Perkins, this chief mediator 
held a conference with John L. Lew- 
is. Miss Perkins already had dis- 
cussed the situation with Lewis, 
seeking data on which conciliation 
could be recommended, though she 
said [this would not be undertaken 
at once. 

The auto workers in their Flint 
meeting, besides "creating the board 
of strategy with power to call a 
strike, approved of eight demands 
on the corporation ranging from rec- 
ognition of .their union to higher 
wages ai»d shorter hours. They also 
appointed a committee to negotiate 
with the corporation.- 

William S. Knudsen, executive 
vice president of General Motors, 
declared- the company: never would 
agree ;td collective bargaining on a 
national basis and, despite' strikes, 
would continue to produce automo- 
biles as long as possible. 

The prime object of the C. I. O. is 
organization of the steel industry, 
and the crisis in the automotive in- 
dustry was not expected by Lewis 
and his associates or wanted at this 
time. (However, they are giving the 
auto workers their full support, mor- 
ally and .financially, j

number of idle steel workers' rose to 
about il.OOO when the 'Youngstown

operations in its strip mill because

Ships, authoritative, naval yearbook,

Thotjgh no figures were given for 
soviet jRussis, it is known the Reds 
are planing to launch a sea pro- 
gram which will bring their naval 
strength up to that of ! their land 
forces,|now the largest in the world. 

Information in Washington says 
the United States has and will have 
under construction 95 warships. It 
expects to increase its personnel 
by almost 10 per cent and build up 
a strong naval reserve., The ships 
will include light and heavy cruis

President on Child Labor 
and Starvation Wages, 
pLTMINATlbN of child labor, 
~ long working hours and starva- 
tion wajjes is a necessity; and must 
be carried out by the. federal gov- 
ernment since it cannot be done by 
state adtion. So declared President 
Roosevelt in his press conference. 
He warned the correspondents not 
to say he was planning! to revive 
the NRA and insisted all he could 
say at present was that something 
should jbe done to fix maximum 
hours and minimum wages. 

Since | the day of the NRA, said 
Mr. Roosevelt; there has been a 
steady decline in child labor, gruel- 
ing hours and starvation wages by 
90 per cent of American business. 
As for |the other 10 per cent, ihe 
said, they were still failing to live 
up. to the best standards since the 
death of the NRA. 

Attorneys for_4he American Fed- 
eration |of Labor were reported to 
be about ready to submit to the 
President a bill designed to restore 
labor protective features lost in the 
death -of NRA. It provides that 
congress catalogue unfair "con- 
duct"- which would be forbidden to 
employers and assure workers ade- 
quate protection. Violations would 
be punishable by a fine. The fed- 
eration |is expected also to back 
federal licensing of interstate cor- 
porations as provided by the O'Ma- 
honey bill.

with a future. It is young and 
practical. The new notched col- 
lar, ending as it does in twin

that is attractive to look at. The 
skirt is slim lined and simple— 
as you would have it. Use dimity 
dotted swiss or gingham for this 
number. | Designed for sizes: 34. 
36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46 and 48. Size 
36 requires 3% yards of 35 inch

model caught with its back this 
way, perhaps the better to show 
off the beautiful shoulders and

Roosevelt took 



- When, President 
office .for his first 
; term* one of : the 
outstanding obser- 
vations that i he 
made was to : the 
effect! that I the . American people 
"feared fear'* and of this condition 
was born idslability. It was a re- 
markable statement and the truth 
of it may not now even be denied.' 
It accurately presented one of i the 
fundamental influences disturbing 
American liije and if that psychology 
could I have peen completely swept 
away, I believe things would have 
been different now. 

As I remember, I .commented at 
that time ufjonj'the new President's 
remark. Subsequently, I called; at- 
tention to tile conditions of admin- 
istration policy (under ;the New Deal 
that were necessarily causing a con- 
tinuation of thajt "fear of fear"! inj- 
stead ' of palming the nation's 
nerves. j 

As Mr. Roosevelt closes his' first 
term and be'gins'his second tenure, 
I believe it is entirely proper again 
to advert io his significant and 
truthful observation of 1933. We 
can look, at this picture only; in 
retrospect, regrettable as it is that 
we cannot see | into the future, j It 
w.ould|then seem! to be an entirely 
permissible' thing to do to examine 
the basis of (Mr. Roosevelt's obser- 
vation! and see ^what has been done 
to correct the condition about which 
he complained. | ; ! . 

I shall not| attempt to. go into (the 
various phases ;of the four-year 
term, j Indeed, jl think it is neither ' 
advisable nor necessary to analyze 
conditions beyond those that are 
basic, (fundamental, in our national 
economic and political structure: ' , 

For I that Reason, and because' of 
recent' developments of administra- 
tive policy, I am writing something 
about money in this report to you. ; 

The (Scripture quotation is: "The 
love of money is the root of | all 
evil." | In treating of the subject of 
money from our practical stand- 
point, j "the We of money" takes 
on quite an unusual definition. For, 
may j point out . in candor, ' there 
never j has been a national admin- 
istration, so' far j as my research 
goes, that has j so! thoroughly loved 
the spending of money. I believe 
Mr. Roosevelt himself enjoys it but 
Mr. Roosevelt | is i not the chief of- 
fender! at his administration in this 
regard. :The! two . men whose rec- 
ords stand out with ah absurd will- 
ingness to throw money around as 
I used to throw pebbles when I 
was a] boy on a Missouri farm are 
Harry j Hopkins! Works Progress ad- 
ministrator,] and Secretary Wallace, 
of thej Department of ■ Agriculture. 
I am quite convinced that Mr. Hop- 
kins is the worse of the two.' My 
conclusion is based on a conviction 
that Mr. Hopkins is the more waste- 
ful. Ilam afraid that when the his- 
tory of this (great' depression is set 
flown in the cold ( light of facts as 
they will appear a ! quarter of a cen T 
tury from now, Mr. Hopkins will 
have a place in that spotlight that 
.will not do (credit to the hundreds 
of people who Have the real welfare 
of the poor at heart. \ 

\ \ i *:..'•' 

The latest development concern- 
tag Mr. Hopkins in his' public state- 
! ment ■ that there 

Money musti'be at least 

for Relief three-quarters of a 
billion new money 
appropriated for his relief work. 
President Roosevelt previously had 
said he would ask (congress for only 
half a billion, jit is difficult to rec-, 
oncile these| two' statements or the 
reasons therefore Some slipshod 
thing has taken place! or else /Mr. 
Hopkins again is ! indulging in his 
favorite sport of spending arid wast- 
ing taxpayers' money, i ■ / 

Now; the figures reveal that re- 
lief operations,' as/ managed by Mr. 
Hopkins/ are |costing about $165,- 
000,00q,a month. If Mr. Roosevelt 
intends to use) only $500,000,000 for 
relief,' | curtailment in sharp fashion 
must take plate./ If no such/cur- 
tailment is intended, even the' Hop- 
kin's figure is. too :small. / 

'Thus, we are] brought face to face 
again jwith 'a question- What is to 
be the policy? I hear/ more and 
more (discussion as congress gets 
under way that some/definite state- 
ment ought (to (be made, some com- 
mitment given, so 7 that the nation 
would know (what it is proposed to do- 
with all of] this money and how 
much of it is tjo' be used. 
/ Incidentally;! Mr. Roosevelt re- 
cently] spoke rather curtly to some 
of his] departmental heads about 
their printing bills. He thought they 
were too large and that money 
should be saved in that direction. 
Now, it I ljappens governmental 
printing bills {amount; to no more 
than a drop in the bucket when com- 
pared to the waste that goes on in 
the enormous relief set-up of which 
Mr. Hopkins is the head. It has 
been shown koo many times to need 
elaboration here. 

Since' Mr! Roosevelt has taken 
note of the| departmental printing 
bills, howeverJl would like to make 
the suggestion .that there is no valid 
reason any. jtonger for excluding re- 
lief appropriations from the regu- 
lar estimates of expenditures as ta- 
in 'the annual budget.' tike 
other items, the relief totals 

may have to be revised later, but 
that does not excuse the rather care- 
less practices that have grown up 
in the calculation of relief expendi- 

tures. It does not 

exclude the ne- 


cessity for a [real protection against 
•heedless spending nor does it! pre- 
vent the formulation of intelligent 
policies. I 

Individually, I do not quite under- 
stand why the administration should 
fuss about a few millions of print- 
ing bills and toss out half a billion 
or three-quarters or a billion, as the 
case mayibe; with reckless abandon 
when such tossing (is done without 
any evident continuity of sound pol- 

• I referred (to Secretary Wallace's 
spending proclivities. Mr. Wallace 

• i« ii ' I ha ' s been going 
Wallace ab j,j Ut tne COU ntry 

Talks Money lately talking of 
! the necessity for 
soil' conservation and the payment 
of a subsidy! to farmers to accom- 
plish that end. He has been talking 
about money] in sums as large 1 as a 
billion dollars a year for crop in- 
surance — a program' in furtherance 
of Mr. Wallace's j "ever normal 
granary" idea. |' 

In theory, ! there is much to be 
said in favor Of spreading unpredict- 
able losses of fanning through in- 
surance. A jlarge part of the dis- 
tress found in agricultural regions 
is. due to the -destruction of crops 
by causes oyer which the farmers 
have no control. If the consequences 
of these hazards could be minimized 
by adjusting losses o]ver wide areas, 
and by us'irig the surplus of • one 
year to offset the .shortage of. the 
next, one "major Ifarm problem 
would be solved. But, as matters 
now stand, there is (a natural tend- 
ency to regard this move with a 
skeptical eye]. This is necessary be- 
cause, like so many theories; the 
Wallace crop insurance, ever ! nor- 
mal granarj* plan |seems to omit 
the one element that is' necessary 
to be included. If ^his proposition 
is to be successful, there simply 
can be no doubt that it must have 
almost unanimous support. It (does 
not have it j and never - will. , The 
reason is that it calls upon the 
government to pay part or all of 
the cost and human nature, inevit- 
ably resents taking from one to! give 
to another. 

Mr. Wallace's ideas were adopted 
by the President's crop insurance 
committee. jThat :ommittee ! was 
supposed to' have the interest of ag- 
riculture at heart. Its recommen- 
dations indicate thai it had riot;only 
such an interest but (an even greater 
interest, namely, making sure ' that 
the farmers were given everything. 

From all of the "discussions : that 
I have heard, I believe it is quite 
apparent that the committee went 
too far. It ] went so far, indeed, 
that it is .arousing resentment from 
the consumers who|think that;they 
will have to| pay the bill. There- 
fore, by proposing a program that is 
too extreme! the crop insurance 
committee and MrJ Wallace have 
forced a cleavage between producer 
and consumer and that is likely to 
result in a renewalj of warfare be- 
tween these two segments of ojr 
national life.] It will cause a re- 
vival of an age-old jquarrel instead 
of a healing Of old wounds. ( 

No one canjdeny that the farmers, 
as a /Class, have hot been getting 
their fair share. From the attitude 
of many thinking farmers, however, 
i/rather believe that agriculture 
would prefer! to have a farm aid 
program which would permit it to 
produce and [sell to the cunsumers 
under harmonious conditions j and 
regulations (rather than get! too 
much and earn the hatred of the 
masses who ire to buy the farmers' 

OUtput. ; . / " j 

To advert to the original theme, 
Mr. Wallace likes to pass out mon- 
ey. He knows, as all others in pub- 
lic life know} that the government 
will be generous , with agriculture 
and I am (afraid ( that fact j has 
caused the otherwise genial jsec- 
retary of agriculture to lose his per- 
spective—to forget that he is foster- 
ing a program that Will change tra- 
ditions and practices on the farms 
of America as surely as the j sun 
shines. | . I ' I ■ 

Farmers are human as everyone 
else is human. Some of them, i like 
some' of us, who must exist among 
modern cliff j dwellings of concrete 
and steel, entertain] a fear that a 
policy of government payments

Onr parly Watches | 
The first watches (were produced 
in all sorts of fanciful designs, with 
cases shaped like crosses or shells 
or mandolins', says a writer in: the 
Washington Star. A peculiar fash- 
ion was that of a watch-case shaped 
'like a skull,j to remind the owner 
when, he looked at it that time pras 
fleeting andi death was drawing 
near.' The lovely and unlucky Mary 
Queen of Scots had| a skull-shaped 
watch; and in view, of her death 
on the headsman's; block it !wa3 
gruesomely appropriate. Cavaliers 
had swords and poniards with little 
.watches set into the hilts.

Burgos, " 

First City" of 

Spain, Has Intriguing History 

Venerable! Pfacn Was Once 

the Capital of Old 


Burgos, : "capital" of rebel 

Spain, while new 

present-day obser /ers, has played 
an important part in the Spain 

of the past; says 

to the ears of 

a bulletin from 

the Washington, D. C, headquar- 
ters of the National Geographic 

"Burgos, | with 

only 32,000 in- 

habitants, rises from the heart 
of a rolling plateau about 130 
miles due north cf Madrid," con- 
tinues the bulletin. 

"As capital of the province of 
Burgos, jit was normally a quiet 
city which the hai d-working farm- 
ers, . shepherds and foresters in 
the province .used as their market 
place. Irrigated fields form green 
patchwork along he. valley of the 
Arlanzon river, but much of the 
district surround ng the city ! s 
arid and barren iike parts of the 
tableland of Mexi :o. Where water 
is available, however, good crops 
thrive — chiefly grains and chick 
peas. i 

Once Capital of Old Castile. 

"While Burgos| may have no 
boast as to high rank among ur- 
ban centers on the i Iberian penin- 
sula; it is rich in history and in 
architectural treasures. Until 
1087, when; the (royal residence,' 
was moved! to Toledo, it was the' 
capital of Old Castile.. It is hinted 
that the crumbling castle above 
the city is one of the main reasons 
for the name of Castile. 
!' "Even after the transfer of the 
royal residence, Burgos was still 
the scene of mubh royal pomp, 
splendor, and treachery. Several 
kings were! crowped there, and 
some were born within its walls. 
Perhaps Burgos' | most notorious 

"■ L. 


son was King Pedro the Cruel, 
who wasi (reputed to decorate his 
rooms with the heads of his vic- 
tims. ;[< 

Columbus Welcomed Here. 

"Columbus', returning from his 
second ekpedition to the fabled 
New World, was welcomed by Fer- 
nando and Isabella in that pala- 
tial residence .of old Burgos, the 
Casa de Gordon. The building still 
spreads lis stone front across one 
side of the Plaza de Libertad. 

"Royal j marriages attracted to 
Burgos the pageantry of medieval 
chivalry from more than one na- 
tion. England sent a Twelfth- 
century princess there to become 
a Spanish queen, and , later came 
an English king -and a French 
duke to claim Spanish wives; 

"In Birgos was born El Cid, 
the naticnal hero of Spain in the 
struggle to reconquer the country 
from the Moors. The hilltop cas- 
tle, thei i j. a magnificent strong- 
hold, wa|s the scene of his mar-

$100,000 ROAD JOBS 

Bids on two state highway jobs 
to cost approximately $100,000 

have been called for January 15 
by N. W. Elsberg, commissioner 
of highways. One project, _ in 
Austin, Mower, county, will elim- 
inate a flood condition imperiling 
Trunk Highways Nos. 18 and 218 
within the city limits, dirt from 
dredging to fill a proposed road- 
" side park area. This job, 2.G 
miles in length, calls for 140,810 
cubic yards, of excavation and 94 . 
cubic yards of concrete sewer 
syphon,' the sewers to be under 
Red Cedar: river and Dobbins 
creek. The other jobs, on T. H. 
* No. 92, between 14 miles south of

vater, but it is a lot worse to feel 
iolid ice above one's head when 
vou come to the surface", thinks 
John Henkes, 15-year old son of 
Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Henkes of Fer- 
gus Falls. John and a chum, who 
'vere fishing through ice at Hoot 
Lake, intended to cut some, holes 
when the former stepped on thin 
ice and j went through. The Ice 
there was thin, but where he came 
to the surface it was a solid mass, 
which his head struck. John made 
numerous attempts to get .to the 
hole, but; inevitably he missed it. 
When he! finally pulled himself; in- 
to it, he could T?et a breath of air 
and thenlhe clung to the edge until 
his companion gave assistance. 
John, the heavier of the two, gave 
all the help he could by lacking his 
feet and I pushing on the ice with 
his hands, and Jimmy Rusted, his 
friend who is younger and lighter, 
with a cool head and a firm hold 
rescued him. 



International Falls.— When the 
Seventh Day Adventist school at 
Browns Corner was destroyed by 
fire on December 1, Miss Alice 
Anderson, resident teacher, gave 
up the roll of bills she had had in 
her desk as lost She believed 
the roll i contained $28, but she 
was not j sure. When the ruins 
had cooled off, however, a search 
was made and a cluster of ashe3 
found which appeared at one time 
to have | been money. The bills 
were turned over to the hank, 
which sent them to Washington to 
the Treasury department. The 
other day the government return- 
ed its answer: the wad of ashes 
was worth $31, eight dollars more 
than the owner thought she had 
had in the desk. The cashier of 
the bank remarked that he would- 
n't havq given a nickel for the 
evidence: "It looked like just a 
bunch of ashes.tb me," he said.

Deadlock^Continues in 
General Motors Strike 
C*pV. FRANK MURPHY of Mich- 
yf |igan abandoned,*; at least for- 
.'the present, his efforts to end the 
deadlock, between the General Mo- 
tors corporation and 
the striking mem- 
bers of the United 
Automobile Work- 
ers, but James F. 
Dewey, conciliator 
for the Department 
of Labor, remained 
in Detroit, still hope- 
ful of bringing about 
a peace conference. 
William S. Knudsen, 
executive vice presi- 
dent of General Mo- 
tors, thus stated the 
corporation's position: 

"General Motors corporation rep- 
resentatives immediately upon 
evacuation of its plants by employ- 
ees engaged in sit down strikes will 
meet with representatives of the 
union, | but to accept the union's 
conditions would have placed Gen- 
eral Motors in the position of con- 
doning itheir illegal actions. We can- 
not condone illegal occupation of 

The union conditions, as set forth 
by President Homer Martin, were: 
f'Wejare willing to agree to with- 
drawal 'if negotiations are opened 
immediately with an agreement that 
all plants remain closed, without 
movement of equipment or resump- 
tion of ^activities until a national set- 
tlement is effected, and with a fur- 
ther agreement that all activities 
such as circulation of petitions, or- 
ganizing of yigilante activities, 
threatening or coercing of employ- 
ees, be immediately stopped." 

About. a thousand men, engaged 
in the ', sit down strikes, were thus 
holding up negotiations for settle- 
ment of the controversy which al- 
ready had thrown out of work near- 
ly 100,000 employees of the corpora- 
tion. | 

General Motors officials received 
telegrams from a number of Ameri- 
can' Federation of Labor units urg- 
ing jdo recognition of the United Au- 
tomobile-Workers as sole bargain- 
ing [agency for the motor car fac- 
tory workers'. They were assured 
the] corporation would not back 
down on this point. 

Making the situation more diffi- 
cult, the strikers in Flint engaged in 
a wild, riotous battle with the 
guards and city police that lasted 
for hours and resulted in the injury 
of dozens of men. The local offi- 
cers restrained themselves admir- 
ably though armed with machine 
guns, and the state police were hur- 
ried to the scene to aid them. Gov- 
ernor Murphy and other state offi- 
cials also went to Flint.

nominally in behalf 
of the sultan of Mo-

FrancoSpanish treaty . of . 1912. 
France' has 100,000, men in her Mo- 
roccan army and could easily and 
speedily occupy most of the Spanish 
zone, which the .Fascists control.

would come from the British fleet 
in the Strait of Gibraltar and possi-

Union. Standing tri-

utive said: 

"The| United 
States of America, 
within itself, .must 
continue the task of 
making democracy 

"In that task the 
legislative branch 
of our government will, I am confi- 
dent, continue to meet the demands 
of democracy whether they relate to 
the curbing of abuses, the extension 
of help to those who need help, or 
the better balancing of our inter- 
dependent economies. 

"So, top, the executive branch of 
the government must move forward 
in this task and, at the same time, 
provide better management for ad- 
ministrative action of t all kinds. 

"The judicial branch also is asked 
by the people to do iis'part in mak- 
ing democracy successful. We do 
not ask jthe courts to call non-ex- 
istent powers into being, but we 
have a right to expect that con- 
ceded powers or those legitimately 
implied shall be made'effective in- 
struments for the common good. 

"The process of our democracy

of essential powers of free govern-

ted to congress a budget for the 1938

icit for the fiscal year beginning'

652,774 hi the current fiscal year 
and $4,763,841,642 in the 1936 fisc;

I wrote in these col- 
_,,-_ weeks ago. In other 
words, the European situation has 
developed after : a -manner, that 
would enable preventative plans to 
be laid on this side of the Atlantic 
ocean. ; | 

'.. But congress, in attempting" to in- 
sure our j neutrality, did probably 
the | most] unneutral thing it could 
have done. In so doing, I believe 
the consensus is that both house and 
senate demonstrated again the in- 
ability characterizing congresses of 
the| last few| years to appraise a 
complete ipicjure. It yielded to what 
it bjelieved to be the public demand 
giving thought to the future. 

Let us 'analyze briefly what hap- 
pened. The congress convened, as 
I have said, jwith an almost unani- 
mous demand 'from the country for 
a djefinite and] workable neutrality 
policy. It convened with two or three 
individual business units seeking to 
deliver shipments of airplanes and 
engines to Jhe so-called loyalist 
troops in Spain. The exporters of 
these war material sensed quick 
action by congress that would de- 
stroy their j contracts. Naturally, 
they put | on jail speed to get the 
planes and engines out of this coun- 
try |ahead of an embargo. Congress, 
io^nanyj boys in a college foot- 
ball match, fell into the spirit of 
competition, a'race. 

! I I"!* • •-: 

Well, the answer is that Robert 

Cuse succeeded in getting his planes 

and -engines on 

board ship and 

There was time after the race with 
Mr. Cuse- was lost to have made 
the correction ofj a mistake which 
should never have', been made in 
the first place. But congressional 
leaders were swept overboard by 
the big wave and j as far as' I am 
concerned have demonstrated again 
their lack of ability to keep their 
feet on the ground. 1 / j 

I do not; know yhat/it. presages in 
the way ;of future' legislation. It 
may be.that after] the excitement 
has died down, congress will again 
debate legislation ! and work out

which^congressional. leaders knew' 
when they enacted the resolution of 
embargo: j ; ■ .- 

So, it appears to-be almost inex- 
cusable, that] men of brains should 
have rusfiedj'a piece of legislation 
on through its channels containing 
an entire absence of neutrality in 
its very language. 

The resolution that was to pre- 
vent Mr.] Cuse and several others 
from shipping ]airplanes and engines 
to Spain not ]only laid down the em- 
bargo which] was its purpose but it 
laid down that embargo specifically 
against SpainJ 

Now, to those not versed in inter- 
national ] law, it may not be im- 
mediately evident; how dangerous 
.such a precedent is. International, 
law requires, : (and it is accepted 
everywhere among all nationsrthat- 
there sliall { be no discrimination 
among nations unless^those,nations 
are declared to' be belligerents. 
Spain has not been so declared. The 
war in Spain is a civil war insofar 
as it relates . to any other nation 
officially! Of ! course, it is a well 
known. fact;]that troops from com- 
munist j Russia and nearly-com- 
munist France are helping the so- 
called loyalist government in Spain. 
It is equally j well known that fascist 
troops from Nazi Germany and fas- 
cist Italy are' supporting the rebel 
liberal General Franco in Spain.. 
These facts] would seem to make 
the war | in -Spain something' more 
than a civil war, which, indeed, it is, 
but as far ! as the United States 
is officially (Concerned, the war in 
Spain, remains civil strife. And yet

Attention ought to be called just 

here to the differences that; have 

y arisen and prom- 

, ' Some is'e to cause difH- 

DUTerences culties ■ between 
the executive 
branch of ; the government and] some 
of the legislators. Mr. Roosevelt, as 
President, seems to feel that he 
should have plenty of power to deal 
with problems like the Spanish situ- 
ation and export qf arms without 
consulting congress. A good'imany 
New Deal Leaders in congress 
feel the same | way. But there 
are many who- [disagree Iwith 
that idea. There i is pronounced 
sentiment at ttiej Capitol in fa- 
vor of legislation that W;0uld 
definitely prohibit the exporting of 
arms and munitions of war but in- 
cluding definitions I and guide lines 
for those in the] executive branch 
of the government] to. enforce. 

It is too early yit to tell what 
form the permajiejjj legislation will 
take because of | the circumstances 
just outlined. Witt the top heavy 
New Deal majority in congress, it 
would seem the better guess to pre- 
dict that Mr. Roosevelt will have his 
way but on the 1 other hand, until 
such an issue becomes clear cut one- 
cannot tell very jfar in advance how 
the two schools of thought will solve 
their problem and whether the Unit- 
ed States will be 1 committed further 
to the one man|contfol thatiwould 
necessarily result from granting 
additional descretionary power to 
the President in a matter of this 
kind. ] '■ ] 

There seems to be no doubt any- 
where that sooner- or later one of 
the nations whose troops is partici- 
pating in the Spanish civil! strife 
will commit an] overact,' an act of 
war. Some hot-headed individual in 
command of a ship or' an airplane 
or troops guarding a border will 
take a pot shot 'that will wipe out a 
life or two and] wipe out peace at 
the same time just as occurred 
when the comparatively insignifi- 
cant Austrian Archduke was shot in 
1914. There can be no question that 
the United States ] must follow an 
International policy under these cir- 
cumstances that is most cautious.

The following excerpts from 
a Montana [paper will be of in- 
terest to many people here. 
"Miss Winiiifred Dyer, daugh- 
ter of Mr. i and Mrs. Sydney 
Dyer of Glacier Park, and Clar- 
ence Bengtson of St. Hilaire, 
Minn., were united in marriage 
December 23rd, at Whitefish, 
Mont., Rev.;Omer idso officiat- 
ing. The : young couple were 
attended by Mrs. Genevieve Idso 
and Ralph Covine. The bride 
wore a gown of dubonnet trans- 
parent velvet with black acces- 
sories, and carried a bouquet'.of 
Lilies of the Valley and sweet 
peas. Mrs. | Bengtson was. grad- 
uated from Whitefish- high 
school in 1935. and later attend- 
ed a college of beauty culture 
in Spokane. Mr. Bengtson is 
employed by the National Park 
Service, and the young couple 
will make their hqme in Glacier 
Park. Mr. i and Mrs. Bengtson 
were honor guests at a wedding 
dinner on Christmas Day- at the 
home of Mr. arid Mrs. Gus 
Vaijis. Centering the table was 
a beautiful: pink and white 
weeding cake decorated with a 
miniature bride and groom. 
Other guests were Mr. and Mrs. 
S. ffl. Dyer | and Kenneth -Dyer, 
parents and brother of the 


Ole Hogquist, one of the pion- 
eers in the community south- 
east of here, and very well 
known thruout that section, 
died Monday at his home at 
Thief River Falls. He resided 
with his brother on a farm 
southeast of here until about 
two years ago when he moved 
to Thief River; Falls. Funeral 
services | were held yesterday at 
the Erickson & Lund chapel at 
Thief River Falls, and inter 
ment was at Greenwood cem- 
etery near that city. 



H itchinsottj— When the new car 
of F ank Thalman of Howard Lake 
star ed missing the other day, he 
began investigating. What he 
foun i was perhaps about the last 
thine he "would have expected— 
about three j pounds of sugar in 
the Eras' tank! The car had been 
parked outside a cafe while Thai- 
man ate his j dinner, after which 
he (rove to j| Delano, only a few 
miles away, |where he noticed the 
cylinders began missing. When 
the !!gas line was found to be 
clogged up, the tank was drained 
ana j the presence or sugar was 
discovered. Some of the gas .was 
taken to the [University and there 
it :rwas estimated that three 
pounds of sugar had been poured 
into the 10 gallons of gas in the 
tank. Since;! sugar can cause a 
good" deal ofj damage in the eng- 
ine, Thalman was lucky his line 
was plugged; and the presence of 
the glucose ..was discovered. It is 
not known ijwh ether someone 
thoi ght thej idea was a good 
prank or whether the sugar was 
< plac ;d in the^gasoline maliciously. 

The personal property tax 
list for jthis year, covering all 
townships . and incorporated 
places in Pennington county is 
published in this issue. The' tax 
is payable, at any time before 
March 1st after which date a 
penalty is added for non-pay- 
ment. The list shows a con- 
siderable! difference from that 
of last year. Many persons 
who paid no tax last year be- 
cause of [exemption under a law 
which | exempted household 
goods from taxation, are again 
on the list. Farmers and oth- 
ers who possessed ar small 
amount I of personal property 
classed as other than farm 
equipment and household goods 
and who paid a high rate last 
year, are either not on the list 
oi; are assessed for smaller 
amounts | due to the statutory 
exemption of $100 which is 
again in [effect. The list is an 
interesting document and 
should be preserved for future

Following renewal of its 
anchise in St. Hilaire, the 
orth^rn States Power Com, 
iriy has put into effect a new 
schedule for 'light and power 
users in the village. .Effective 
this month the residential rate 
is 7 cents per kwh for the first 
G kwh per room, and from 3.5 
for j the next 50 kwh down to 
2 -cents for larger amounts. An- 
other downward revision is to 
take effect next January 1st, 
1988. The ,step-rate' .plan on 
commercial lighting arid power 
gbes into effect now, and on 
July 1st, 1937 another revision 
will be made which will save 
energy consumers approximate- 
ly 3 cents per kwh. These rates 
are | as low, and in most cases 
loWr, than those prevailing in 
a majority of towns in' this part 
of the state. 

Considering the exceptionally 
lew] rates now offered, it will 
b> possible for people in St. Hil- 
aire; to cook with electricity at 
very near the same cost as us- 
iiig wood and coal, and e^ec- 
ti'ical refrigeration wilKbe avail- 
able, to about the same price as 
is rlow paid for ice. As basis 
ft^r | determining rates is the 
average "load" of electrical en- 
ergy distributed over the line, 
and; St. 'Hilaire is not a very 
large townspeople here are very 
fortunate in getting these ex- 
ceptionally low rates. |

are asked fo raise every dollar 
possible. Qver a million people

This wise owl has a lugubrious air 
about him and no wonder. The bird 
is deeply attached to Charles Kor- 
net, of New York city, who found 
him in Bronx park and made a pet 
of him. But Charles, unable to care 
for the [bird, took, it to the Bronx 
zoo, where he is pictured just be- 
fore he said good-by to his feathered 
pal. The 1 owl likes his perch, which 
provides a means of gauging his 
size, which isi4 inches tall;- weight, 
8 ounces'. The owl is one of the small- 
est of its kind on record. 

inventor William Frank Wells, of the Harvard Medical school, Boston, 
is shown with his: "floodlight" germ killing jippsratus. According to 
Wells combination imercury and neon tubes, with fluartz : glass tubing, 
and ultra violet rays given off, filter the atmosphere about the lamp, 
killing off all flu, and other germs. The apparatus— very successful in 
experiments— has already been installed in several New York hospitals.

Home Heating 

USnte By John Barclay 

IlllllO Heatint Expert 

THERE'S an art in refueling a 
furnace fire that enables you 
to get the most heat at the least 
cost. There's more to it than just 
scooping up a few shovelfuls of 
coal and tossing it into the firepot. 
The economical way is simple. 

Shake the grates gently when 
necessary. Don't do it vigorously . 
and shake a lot of live coals into 
the ashpit. When you see a slight 

red glow in the ashpit, stop shak- 
ing. Then pull a mound of live 
coals from the rear to the front 
of the firebox, just inside the fire-_ 
door, using your shovel or a hoe. 
Don't disturb the ash under the 
live coals. That gives you a fire 
bed sloping down from the edge of 
the door to the rear. 

Now, shovel a charge of fresh 
coal into the hollow toward the 
back of the furnace, being careful 
to leave a mound of live coals in 
front. These live coals ignite the 
gases rising from the contact of 
the fresh and hot coal,, causing 
them to burn. 

Finally, when these gases are 
thoroughly burned, clean the ash- 
pit and reset the dampers. The 
turn damper in the smoke pipe, 
remember, should be nearly 
closed. The check damper should 
be entirely closed. The ashpit 
damper should be open. Open the 
slide in the firedoor only .about the 
width of a wooden match.

Duluth— State relief officials have 
agreed to reopen the Grover Conzet 
^anslent camp near 'Grand Marais to 
house and feed 400 homeless northern 
Minnesota lumberjack's as their strike, 
showed first signs of action toward 
settlement. Several small operators 
are reported ready to accept the terms 
of the strikers. About 3500 men have 
quit work, Fred LeQuer, president of 
the timber workers' union, claimed. 
Caring for the strikers had become a 
major problem since most of the lum- 
berjacks are without homes. When 
the strike was called, union officials 
planned to have the strikers occupy 
the 'camps and thus eliminate the 
housing problem. Most operators; 
however, paid their men and told 
them . to leave. Camp supplies were 
cut off. " . | 

St. Paul — Seed buyers are cautioned 
to read carefully .the labels on seed 
containers ', by C. P. Bull, directors of 
the seed and weed inspection division 
of the state department of agriculture. 
"Certified" seeds must be -certified f or 
some particular purpose, such as purr 
ity and freedom from weed seeds, be r 
fore being of value to the buyer, he 
;said. The label "U. S. Verified,'! 
; means the United States office has 
'verified the seed only as to its origin 
and not as to purity, weed content or 
Termination, Mr. Bull pointed out 

If throat Is ton 
slio, gargle with 8 
Biyer tablets In 
H glass of water. 

The .modern way to ease a cold is 
this: Two Bayer Aspirin tablets the 
moment you feel a cold coming on. 
Repeat, if necessary, in two hours. If 
you also have a sore throat as a result 
of the cold, dissolve 3 Bayer tablets in 
yi glass of water and gargle with this 
twice. The Bayer Aspirin you take 
internally will act to combat fever, 
aches, pains which usually accompany 
a cold. The gargle will provide almost 
instant relief from soreness and raw- 
ness of your throat. Your doctor, we 
feel sure, will approve this modern 
way. Ask your druggist for genuine 
Bayer Aspirin by its full name — not 
by the name "aspirin" alone.

Orittnats of New Testament 
N The New Testament waa orlgtosuV 
ly written in-Greek. It Is not claimed I 
that any of the manuicripte-written 
by the apostles themselves are in 
existence, but numerous early, 
copies in use - in the Christian 
churches of Europe, Asia and Af- 
rica, from which the New Testa- 
ment was translated into Latin and 
other languages are preserved in 
the Vatican library at Rome, In 
various monasteries, and other 
places. The Scriptures were first 
translated into English by John 
Wlckliffe between A. D. 137i and 

to PEED JOLLEY and Lew Held 
i3 were more than just friends; 
they were pals. They roomed to- 
gether when Lew was in New York. 
When he was in Maryland or Flor- 
ida he [would write to Speed every 
day. He would give Speed an ac- 
I counting of the day's doings; the 
(■races he won and those he lost, too. 
IjHe would ask Speed In his letters, 
; If he saw this about him In the pa- 
'jpera arid that, always knowing that 
Speed would cat every line out and 
save Iti 

Yon see, at this particular time. 
Lew Held was the leading Jockey of 
the country. People that followed 
the horses, and especially those who 
bet their good money, would tell 
you that you couldn't bet against 
Reld. j'The kid's a miracle man," 
they'd say, and they were almost 
right jHorses that never ran bet- 
ter than third, and which went to 
the post at eight to one and ten to 
j [one Lew brought home right in 
I front Soon it became a question of 
; who w'as riding the horse. Not very 
: long ago Goldle B, a fair three-year- 
' 'old, was quoted at ten to one in the 
' morning line. An hour before the 
i race there was a change in Jockeys. 
Heller came off and Reld went up, 
and In ; less than ten minutes the 
price dropped to four to one. And 
to top It off, Reld brought the horse 
In right in front So It looked as 
If he really knew how to do it. 
*{*.* «.• • • 
! It was the month of April urnl 
the Pejton outfit for .which Lew 
was riding, was in New York for 
the Jamaica meet 
; Speed had said nothing to Lew In 
his letters about losing his Job, and 
when he did tejl him. Lew passed 
it off lightly, telling Speed that he 
had nothing to worry about. 

"You'll be gettln' better soon. 
Speed, j An' besides, ya got a few^ 
hundred In the bank, so what's the 
!use of jworryln'?" ' i - 

: "WellT maybe you're right, Lew." 
Ismlled' 'Speed. "Let's forget it for 
tonight] Helen's havin' a few 
friends over and asked us to drop 

; Helen was Speed's sister and 
spending an evening at her place, 
even though It was a half-hour 
'ride on the subway, was nothing 
new to either of them. 
! We'll; skip over a few weeks here 
• to make a long story short. 
1 The night of Helen's party Lew 
■ met Sue Thompson, and from the 
.first moment he, laid eyes on her he 
;knew he was In love. But unfortu- 
■nately, Speed met her too and felt 
jthe same way about hei\/Becau3e 
[Lew had to divide his time be- 
tween Maryland ana New York, 
[Speed had the advantage, and It 
[wasn't long before he told Lew that 
ihe and. Sue Were planning to get 
jmarried—IX/Speed could get a Job. 
1 Lew's ifdor for Speed had cooled 
[since the nlglit they met Sue, though 
he tried real hard to keep his friend 
froni noticing It. Little did Speed 
rallze ; that every time he men- 
tioned Sue's name, he was driving 
|a spike into Lew's heart. 
I Then [one day Lew came to Speed 
with an idea. Lew was riding at 
Saratoga at the time. "Red" Du- 
jbln andjbis gambling syndicate were 
.on hand, and Lew knew that one or 
two races every day would be a bit 
shady. | He also knew that what- 
ever was going on he would have 
[ito be In "on the know," for to beat 
:[the racg^rhey would have to beat 
Lew Reld. And so a day later 
: Speed was at the track, and that 
[evening! Lew Is telling Speed, "If 
iyon see'|a red ribbon on my hat, bet 
[the horse I'm riding, if I'm wearing 
[a green I ribbon, lay off." And Speed. 
( so as npt to forget, wrote It down. 
if'Soon," [continued Lew, "you'll have 
jbnough dotgh to marry Sue without 
havin" to worry about gettln' a job.". 
1! Speed was happy; happy to have 
ja friend like Lew and a girl like 
Sue. Little did he dream that Lew, 
vindictive in his Heart, was fram- 
ing hlm[ to lose his Ave hundred, so 
that heiwould be that much further 
away from Sue and his contemplat- 
ed marriage. 

.Speed watched with anxious eyes 
each time Lew. came from the sta- 
bles and, seeing a red ribbon, would 
3ash over to the window and make 
als bets; Three days later his bank- 
roll increased to thirty-five hundred 
iollars, and a week later he and Sue 
were to be married. Lew, of course, 
■was the best man. 
|' It wasn't a large wedding, but it 
was beautiful. Everything done up 
just right as Speed said later. 
I Lew and Speed were waiting for 
Sue to dress. Soon she came through 
[the door. Over her wedding gown 
of white she wore a green coat the 
only one she bad that would suit 
the occasion. As she approached 
Lew and - Speed tbe prospective 
bridegroom smiled with pride and 
turning. to Lew said, "Gee, doesn't 
'she -ook[ beautiful in red and white!" 
I Lew stared at him aghast So 
that was it I For the first time In 
all the years. Lew had Just found 
put that Speed was color blind. 


Oysters Have Been Used 

Since in Year 80 B. C 

iTh^ oyster has a lengthy tra'diUon, 
having appeared as early as 80 B. C. 
in Rome when boats brought back 
cargoes from Britain. Writers 
throujgh the/ages have told of the 
palate. tickling abilities of this sea 
food. j \ i 

, Inj the [days of Charles Dickens. 

. widespread verses urged citizens to 

i partake of the delicacy. "Inpyster 

j days, there is nothing to fearf taste 

' on Ui ; first day. you are good for a 

| year. ' Also: "By chance the first 

; . day ] rats j them out of your iower, 

j eat d mble the quantity every, hour; 

! the e: fect[ will assuredly prove near 

I the same, and cure every ill that 

j trie doctors can name." [ 

American Indians dried, smoked 

and strung oysters on twigs for 

barte r purposes. Early colonists 

loon realized the possibilities'and 

creatid a sizable trade in ttu}ra. 

Envy ofithe world, this Am ;rican 
grow l mollusk is. a highly cult vated 
anim ll. Sensitive to vagar: es of 
r_an, fish or nature, he is the recip- 
ient t f the most delicate care from 
tie tine of spawning till te appears 
still alive, ,in the kitchen. Oyster 
f shermen are a superstitious lot be- 
cause ' of his delicate nature 1 , and 
isuaiyfound to be most religious. —

Paris Arc de Triomphe ' 
; Completed in 30 Years 

j | The Arc de Triomphe in Paris, 
i though begun in 1806 by Napoleon 
; who : ntended it as a monument to 
the g ory of his army, after it had 
won the battle of Austerlitz. 
was tot completed and. inaugurated 
until 30 years later. 'It cost the 
state over 9,000,0000,000 francs,, be- 
' cause of its substructure, which ex- 

■ tends below 45 fe^t from the ground. 
I | Louis XVIII decided to hive it 

comp eted and finished the job at 
■high pressure oh the accession of 
llouis Philippe. The figures in' the 
great frieze running around the top 
-, are over 6 feet High and represent 
I the c eparture and return 
^renc h armies. I 

The handsome 'arch has suTered 
badly at different periods of its -ex- 
istence at the hands of frienii ant 
foe alike, notably perhaps ajl^he 
fall of the secondlempire, while the 

■ Commune raged ui the city. It was 
| calculated that for Uwee weeks 90 

shells were fired |aj/it daily. With 
the. restoration of law and lorder 
the Arc de Triomphe was com- 
pletely restored. To reach the' sum-

Musical Insects J 
For centuries of Japan's long his- 
tory, musical insects have been ob- 
jects at affection and veneration. 
Emperors have fancied them. 
Nobles have hunted them. Poets 
have lavished upon them a litera- 
ture of the classically perfect!, but 
exacting, verse-form called uta and 
halkai, in which profound thought 
id phrased or swift vision brushed, 

log lower at all the village stores. 
Bills for candy, perfume, magazines, 
cigarettes even, which he had show- 
ered with Beau Brummel largess 
upon all pretty girls within a twen- 
ty mile radius, of Ender. There[ were 
bills, too, for the best leather: with 
which to decorate his hlgh-steppinfr 
sorrel saddle horse, for the upkeep 
of his gleaming chromium-triuiineii 
yellow roadster, for even his actual 
board and keep at the Central hotel. 
• Prom time to time Doctor Billy 
listened to a wide wave of protest 
from his beloved old cronies, the 
merchants along Main street He 
had little to say in return, but the 
truth was that he, also, was Ins- 
lng patience, with the dashing Mr. 

Brown hadn't been in town long 
before Doctor Billy was pulling him 
through a severe attack of Influen- 
za. Later when Brown recovered, 
he evinced no interest In the bill for 
services rendered and the chubby 
little doctor was too easy-going to 
mention it A few months ! after 
this, Brown fractured an arm when 
his yellow roadster, going ninety 
around a nasty curve, turned, over. 
Past driving Impelled by hard liq- 
uor, Doctor Billy privately decided. 
Yet he carefully nursed the) pain- 
ful arm along for the rash fool and 
.eventually bad It as good as 1 new. 
For this, Doctor Billy received not- 
even a "thank you." So he soni 
the fellow a bill for fifty dollnrs. 
But Brown Ignored It 

Soon Doctor Brown .was called 
upon to patch up Brown after n hail 
spill from his spur-conscious horse. 
The results were most successful sn 
far as Brown was concerned, hut 
negligible again for the doctor[ This 
was followed by an arduous siege nl 
typhoid with Doctor Billy's scienee 
emerging victorious again. In 1 spile 
of all this, however, no monetary 
reward came to him for his unitsuni 
skill and Ingenuity exerted I in a 
small town without a hospital. 

Then, finally Doctor Billy was 
needing funds most acutely to send 
-a son through college, so lie ap- 
pealed personally to the now physi- 
cally' fit Brown. His medlciil ar- 
rears to date were exactly j three 
hundred dollars, a ridiculously; small 
Bum for having his life saved sev 
eral times. 

"Great Scott, Doc 1 . Haven't !l paid 
that yet? Bring you in a check 1,1 
day!" exclaimed Brown affably as. 
almost apologetically Doctor [ Hilly 
interrogated him. But the doctor'-- 
day dragged out to tllsmul hopeless- 
ness, for nothing like a check i-aim- 
.his way. 

The.following morning, happening 
to meet Brown on Main street, 1 Joe- 
tor Billy again mentioned the debt. 
Mentioned It pleasantly but iinuly, 
as any man in like position was 
privileged to do. Brown'sj lean 
brown face flushed crimson. "Yes. 
certainly," he returned stiffly, "to- 
morrow I'll—" 

"Got to -have it now — have tor 
meet an obligation myself," clinpped 
out Doctor Billy stonily. [ 

"Glad to accommodate," angrily 
retorted Brown, whipping out pen 
and check book. "I generally can 
pay my bills!" I 

Soon now, Doctor Billy wlis as- 
tonished to find himself, check in 
hand, looking after a rapidly van- 
ishing, young man. He decided to 
lose no time himself so he liurrletl 
across the^-treet to fender's only 
bank where he presented tlie slip 
of paper. j "', 

"Confound that fellow! I can't 
cash It!" sputtered Mellings, the- 
cashier*. "He's always overdrawing 
his account." .... j 

"Scamp I" exploded Doctor Billy 
exasperatedly as he began to tuck 

Birds and Plants Live ' 
Off Fortunate Neighbor 

A notorious bird bandit is the 
skua, a Jarge robber gull which lives 
by cunning. Found on our northern 
seas, observes a writer in Tit-Bits ' 
Magazine, and nesting on Scotland's 
wild moors and the adjacent is- 
lands, ft will not take the trouble 
to search for. food. It prefers to 
follow a flock of gulls, and when 
one secures a beakful of food or 
snaps up a fish, the skua gives chase 
and worries the smaller bird until 
It drops its prey. Then the robber 
pounces to enjoy a stolen meal. 

In the world of plants we find 
many species which live upon their 
neighbors. The* mistletoe is a para- 
site upon trees, such as the apple 
and poplar; the ivy climbs up forest 
trees, driving its roots into the bark 
and obtaining sustenance. But ono 
of the most interesting is the dodder. 

This plant is little known, al- 
though it is found in. abundance in. 
many parts, particularly o^heaths 
and moors. On furze commons we 
sometimes see a bush which has ■ 
the appearance of being partly cov- 
ered with a mass of fine Crimson 
twine. If we look closely we see 
that at intervals along the twine 
there are little bunches of what at 
first appear to be bundles of small 
knots.^ but they are clusters /of 
diminutive flowers. 

Botanists maintain that itrihe dis- 
tant past the dodder foirght for its, 
living, but as ages passed it became' 
more and moreidependent upon 
others, and atlflst joined the ranks 
of shiftless plants that live entirely 
upon 'he[ltosts on which they settle.

I Jqhann Ludwig Leichner 

Father of Grease Paint 

As the father of grease paint, - 
Johann Ludwig Leichner merits the 
gratitude of every actor and actress 
born in the last hundred years. Pre- 
viously, relates a writer in the 
Philadelphia Inquirer, dry powder 
was the popular stage make-up, but 
under ' the stress of volatile emo- 
tions, this would make a sorry, gar- 
ish patchwork of the most chastely 
decorated features. Imagine, then, 
the actress' joy at getting from 
Leichner a scientific grease paint - 
that not only kept her face cool, but 
was proof against the most tearful 

Froni earliest times, women have 
painted their features. Kohl, a 
powdered antimony, served to bring 
luster to the eyelashes of Egyptian 
sirens at Cleopatra's court; many 
also used' henna* to Improve their 
hair, [Characteristically, Roman 
matrons copied these allurements, 
addlng:0ne of their own— bleaching 
the hair. . . • 

Tudor actresses kept their secrets 
in a well-equipped make-up box, 
called [the "sweet coffer." Later 
came the Puritans, castigating this . 
magic 1 and seeking to punish as 
witches all women convicted of 
using artificial aids to beauty. . 

Football S00 B. C. t 

Football originated in Sparta" as 
an organized game 500 B~ C, ac- 
cording to a writer in the' Wash-, 
ington Post'The Roman legions who. 
conquered Greece brought the game 
back, carried it to all parts of Eu- 
rope and finally to the British/Isles. 
-In those days it was a military 
pastime. "Later in England it .be- 
came a game played by entire towns 
and villages. The goal was the 
churcji in each town. Frequently 
the villages were miles apart, but 
everybody was allowed to partici- 
pate. Thus the battle raged for 
hours or on entire day over 'the 
countryside, until one side or the 
other kicked the ball against the 
other's church. American football 
is a variation of English rugby.

suddenly he Inquired, "How 
does he lack on this?'; 

"One hundred — even," returned 
Mellings, wearily. "If he doesn't 
stop, this — " I 

"Humph !" spat out Doctor Billy 
as he whirled to the wrltingjstand. 

In no time at all he was back at 
the cashier's window. Holding out 
his own check for one hundred dol- 
lars made payable to cash.! "Put 
this In the scoundrel's account," he 
ordered tersely. j 

The astonished Mellings prompt- 
ly obeyed. Then he demanded with 
an old friend's prerogative, "What's 
the idea— why should you — 'j 

But Doctor ' Billy was shoving 
Brown's check toward -the cashier 
again. "Now If you'll -cash this 
which Is good as gold," he cljuckled 
grimly, "I'll take a loss of a hun- 
dred— ond call It s day!" I .

In the 

Black Forest Burned 
The pages of European forest his- 
tory are blackened ' Jl ere and 
there with forest smoke. About 1800, 
there were fires in western Europe, 
for a part of the Black Forest in 
Germany was burned. In 1826 ex- 
tensive forest fires swept over por- 
tions of Sweden and Denmark. 
"Dark Days" are scattered through 
history^ usuallyxdue to large forest 
fires though in some cases to vol- 
canic eruptions. Such days on the 
Pacific Coast are still fresh in the

Prospect Park driveway and then 
slowed down to a leisurely • pace. 
He glanced at Eve who was pen- 
sively gazing- gut of the open win- 
dow. It was a beautiful warm spring 
evening with just enough breeze to 
send' the blood coursing through the 
body. He looked for parking space 
and soon found it right under sev- 
eral oak trees. He eased the car 
into tlie spot and stopped. Eve 
turned toward -him. 

He put his arm around her and 
kl_sed her. \ 

She. pushed him away and looked 
.at him ealin.y. "Now that that's 
over, what shall we do next?'' 

Jerry withdrew his arm. "From 
which I gather that you weren't' 
thrilled,'* he said, nettled. 

Eve tapped her foot angrily. "Jer- 
ry, 'we've gone, through this a dozen 
times before. Each night you 
drive me out and then proceed to 
mnke love to me. And each night 
I have to convince you that I don't 
l6ve you. For the last time, Jerry, 
let's be friends; let's not spoil It 
by making scenes. If we can't bo 
'friends, then Vm afraid we shouldn't 
see each other again."

Scotland's Clan System | Saluki, Dog Was Declared 

Is of Ancient Vintage j Satired by Some Moslems 

Scotland's sys'em of clans is as ! When | American dog fanciers get 
old as' the history of man, and one j ^^ a 'discussion about very old 
Of the few tribal I systems that flour- j br eeds jpl dogs they naturally in- 
ished up to modern times. In former | cl "de the Saluki, the royal dog of 
days all men within a clan had. the j Egypt, because this member of the 
same surname, and believed them- 
selves to be related one to the other 
and descended from the same stock. 
However, according, to a writer in 
the Los Angelesl Timqs, many fea- 
tures of the clan system have been 
forgotten and it is no longer Un- 
common for Highlanders Mo inter- 
marry with clans they once "con- 
sidered hereditary- enemies. 

The other feature that always at- 
tracts Americans to the Highland 
games, the bagpipes, -claims an 
origin, almost as] ancient as that of 
the clan. Bagpipes wire known to 

the Greeks and the Trojans, and it! hi a chase. But there are other 
is said that Nero was able to play sources of information about the 

hound _amily is commonly called 
the oldest breed of domesticated 
dog. Students of dog history claim 
that the' Saluki was a distinct breed 
as long ago as 329 B. C. when Alex- 
ander the Great was at the height, 
of his power. 

The Mohammedan religion classes 
the dog as unclean, but the graceful, 
speedy Saluki was declared sacred 
and th. Moslems called him the 
"noble me," observes a writer in 
the Chi :ago Tribune. This had its 
practice 1 side. It permitted Moslems 
to eat t le meat that the dog killed 

them. In fact, there- 

a record a _ e o£ 

that he once promised to' appear j the do, 
before his people a ; a bagpipe 

Bagpipes are turnet out in great 
numbers of factories in Glasgow, 
but the 'curious thing is that Scot- 
land no longer has the .most of its 
national musical instruments, for 

the majority of 

to other countries, 


are exported 

Cellulose, Cotton or Wood 

Pure cellulose- in thej form of cot- 
ton linters or wood pulp is treated 
with lye under carefully controlled 
conditions to forin a sort of sodium 
salt known as soda cellulose. This 
is aged and then treated'with dilute. 
lye and carbon . disulnhide, which 
dissolve it to give a fsirupy liquid 
called viscose solution, which can 
be reconverted Into solid cellulose 
by treatment with dilute acids. If 
the viscose solution is forced 
through a fine hole into the coagu-r 
lattng solution, ja. fiber of rayon is 
formed. If it is forced through a 
split, a sheet of i cellophane results. 

ihe Saluki breed. Many of 
:s . were mummified and 
buried \Wth their masters in tombs. 
The claat of the Saluki is smooth 
and quite soft, rather silky in tex- 
ture. .What gives the dog a rather 
unusual' appearance is the slight 
feather ion the legs at the back of 
the thighs— possibly a slightly wool- 
ly featHer. In. the smooth variety, 
naturally,, there" is no feathering

her out of spite. Shu secretly looked 
forward to seeing him in the hall- 
room of the Hotel Clinton. She- 
Vealfzed frankly that the reason she ■- 
was going was hecause she hud 
heard he wohhl he there. 

On the niglit of the Uanee, escort- 
ed by Donald Meyers, .she entered 
the ballrooni of the hotel and 
gazed eagerly about her. Iiut It v 
was not until! she had had several, 
dances with her escort that .he sud- 
denly spotted jerry. Hit hoily stiff-

Jerry was dancing with n pi-etry

the time to thdir lives. Jerry's part- 
ner hod her face turned up to Ins, 
nnd they were smiling at ouch 
other. Then Eve saw smnethiim 
which made her turn away fii pain. 
Jerry had kissed his partner, liiglit 
out on the dance floor: In lull

could have been less brazen uhmit It :

.she reached home. She coulnV t'sleep 
that night. Nor (he next. A -whnl.

foighly controversial. |

the President's^ 'special message

It is hardly necessary here to set 

down all of the potential dangers 

ii «■ i " >a * can emanate 
Potential f rom political con- 

Dangers trol of such a vast 
structure as the 
railroads of the [United States. It 
is unlimited in its possibilities. Dan- 
gers are inherent in any program 
of that kind with| which the politi- 
cians are identified and it appears 
to be a circumstance in which con- 
gress, if it is going to serve the 
people properly, should call a halt J 

As to the general accounting of- 
fice and the plant to include it in 
the Treasury again under the rule 
ol an auditor general, the reorgani- 
zation scheme simply will set con- 
trol of public expenditures back a 
quarter of a century. One of the 
earlier Presidents made no effort 
to conceal the use that could be 
made of the auditing unit of the gov- 
ernment when he |said, on an occa- 
sion where the chief auditor ruled 
an expenditure illegal, that if it 
were not possible to change the 
ruling under the j law, it still was 
possible to change the chief auditor! 

I am not making a charge that 
the present administration desires 
to spend congressional! appropria- 
tions illegally; but one cannot dodge 
the conversations that j are taking 
place around the [ Capitol in which 
legislators recall howj President 
Roosevelt criticized John R. Mc Carl 
when he was comptroller general 
for a decision that prevented use 
of public money lin a manner de- 
sired by the President, j To sum up 
this particular phase of the situ- 
ation, one hardly need io say more 
than that if the[ auditor general 
is a subordinate ! of the .Secretary 
of the Treasury, lie is likely to take 
orders from the [Secretary of the 
Treasury, whoever that Secretary 
may be. And, since the Secretary 
of the Treasury is an appointee of 
the President and serves only at 
the President's pleasure,. in my 
mind a link is established where- 
by the White House again will con- 
trol determination of legality and 
illegality of expenditures. 

Congress created the [general ac- 
counting office in order that it would 
have an agency independent of the 
Chief Executive and the executive 
departments to keep tab on how 
those executive agencies expend- 
ed the money wriich congress ap- 
propriated. That' was I the reason 
why the office of comptroller gener- 
al was ■ made to t carry j a fifteen- 
year appointment [with removal only 
for malfeasance j or misfeasance. 
Now it is proposed to]- tear down 
that structure and bring j the whole 
auditing organization under a cab- 
inet officer. | | ■ 

But there is another phase to be 
considered. It has been my, good 
fortune to be in ! Washington dur- 
ing the entire life of the, general 
accounting office as well as for sev- 
eral years before. J Of my own knowl- 
edge, I can say , that the general 
accounting office has recovered mil- 
lions of dollars of illegally! disbursed 
funds as well as! prevented illegal 
disbursement of other millions.

There seems to be more support 

for inclusion of {the civil service 
_. .. sommission in the- 

LiOU form qt a civil 

Service service | adniinis- 

, trator iunder an 
executive department than there is 
support for breaking up of the fed- 
eral trade commission asl the Presi- 
dent proposed. Neither! of these 
agencies has such an important 
bearing on the public as a whole 
as do the other [ two I [ have dis- 
cussed. The plan to make the civil 
service administration subject to, 
cabinet control was softened con- 
siderably by the President by inclu- 
sion of a proposal to make al^gov- 
ernment employes below policy- 
making grades subject to civil serv- 
ice laws. That is a big / step for- 
ward, provided it is not;a ruse to 
permit packing the lists with ad- 
herents of one political' party or the 
other, whichever in power.

gan would soon resign as chairman 
of the Tennessee Valley authority 
as the result of his 
long and bitter dis- 
agreement with Di- 
rector David Lilien- 
thal over TVA poli- 
cies. Both the gen- 
tlemen, were in the

peared they had

Roosevelt for his 
decision as to which

was formerly Wisconsin 
commissioner under Gov. Phil La 
Follette, favors unrelentingj war- 
fare on private utility interests. 
Doctor Morganv on the other) hand, 
doesn't want a\jfight to a finish" 
but, rather, a co-operative I effort 
to pool public and private electric- 
ity in the Southeast in order to end 
TVA's legal war with the private 
interests. Thj chairman, however, 
stood almost alone among those who 
are shaping the administration's 
power policy.: He issued a | state- 
ment to the press setting forth his 
views but it didn't arouse |much 
sympathy in high circles. ;

by attempting to reopen the Cadil-

of picketing at the | Guide Lamp

General Motors accused the union 
of violating the truce by refusing 
to remove sit-down -strikers! from 
all the plants. Vice President Knud-

Approximately 2,000 Christmas 
trees with a" retail value of $1,250,- 
000 were cut in Minnesota in' 1936, 
according to the state division of 
forestry. II 

About 700,000 trees were used 
within the state and 1,300,000 were 
sent to other states,| an increase of 
nearly 10 per cent over 1935. In 
1935, the first year| for which ac- 
curate figures are available, a to- 
tal of 1,800,000 trees were cut, 
with 600,000 beine used within the 
.state and lj200,000 iexported. 

The number of trees wasted in 
1936 amounted to only a fraction 
of one per cent, according to state 
forestry officials. I 

A 'checkup of Duluth Christmas 
tree dealers showed a surplus of 
742 trees. In St. Paul dealers in- 
terviewed after Christmas reported 
having an average of only five to 
ten trees left Over. Similar condi- 
tions; were Reported in Minneapolis. 

Several towns in | western and 
, southern Minnesoita reported less 
than! a dozen trees. | 

Statistics | on the Christmas tree 
industry, are gathered by the divi- 
sion ;of forestry by I tabulating the 
number of tags sold to dealers un- 
der terms of the Christmas tree 
control law passed by the 1935 
Legislature.! I 


Taking ud the fight against pro- 
posed increases in [auto licenses 
and the gasoline tax, the Citizens' 
Tax Relief Association in a com- 
munication received here today 
asked owners of automobiles to 
write to their legislators at once 
and register thsir protest to the 
increases. ] 

John F. Scott, president of the 
association.jsaid powerful forces 
are beintr organized to put through 
a $4,000,000 increase in auto li- 
censes and an increase of ( at least a 
cent in gasoline taxes, which would 
exact another 84,000,000 from car 
owners of the state,[ and expressed 
the fear that they may be success- 
ful if automobile owners do not 
rise in mass and make a general 
protest. . 

"Secretary of State Holm has 
pointed out that Minnesota had 
more than §41,000,000 for roads 
lost year, including just the money 
collected from motorists in licenses 
and gasoline tax, state bonds issu- 
ed for road work and federal aid. 

In | addition there 'are other sub- 
stantial funds for roads disbursed 
by the local | communities. 

"We believe along with Secre- 
tary of State Holm that that is 
enough money for roads in Min- 
nesota and that there is no neces- 
sity to increase the j licenses. Most 
of the families that 'own cars need 
a lot fof thing! more than they need 
more' highways." 


Land Exchange 
Passed by 

The state 


House | of Representa- 
tives last week passed a bill call- 
ing for submission to the'people of 
a constitutional amendment auth- 
orizing the Legislature to permit 
the exchange of certain state lands 
for federal lands. I 

The amendment, although admit- 
tedly non-controversial, has been 
defeated at the last four general . 
elections. It '{would permit both fed- 
eral and state governments to 
manage their lands within the 
state of Minnesota ' more effective- 
ly, according to conservation offici- 
als. I ' i I • . 

It is pointed out 1 that there are 
more than 300,000 acres of state 
the Chippewa aud Superior nation- 
al forests. Approval |of the amend- 
ment would [permit ;the state gov- 
ernment to Exchange such holdings 
for lands more readily accessible to 
state; . administration. Mineral 
rights to any lands exchanged 
would be retained by the state.

of ififty rooters, motored to Red 
Lake Falls last "Friday evening 
and engaged I the high school 
team of that city in a spirited 
game which resulted in a vic- 
tory for the local boys by a 
.score of 23 tb 18. The teams 
.were quite evenly matched and 
neither had anydecided advant- 
age except in the last quarter 
when the local boys made some 
very fine stjots which gave 
them the lead mentioned. The 
Sti Hilaire team! has improved a 
lot lately, and pow need only 
more practice on large floors to 
make them ioimidable oppon- 
ents for the average - school 
team. Highly pleased with 
their success at Red Lake Falls, 
-they have scheduled another 
game with that|team for Tues- 
day, Feb. 9th to be played on 
the splendid floor in the new

After surveying the task 
ahead to rehabilitate homes in 
the flood area of the Ohio and 
Mississippi rivers, flood fighters 
of the Red Cross have called on 
the public to carry its cash aid 
far beyond j the original goal. 
Officials say i they may need an- 
other fund like the 517,000,000 
spent on the Mississippi valley 
floods in 1927. About two 
thirds of that amount has been 
raised now for use in the pre- 
sent situation. ,

A most harmonious gathering 
marked the annual meeting of

Creamery Association held here 
Monday. Report of the secre- 
tary, as read at the ■ meeting 
shwws the association enjoyed a 
very successful year during 
1936 with a substantial increase 
in volume of output. The as- 
sociation is in good shape finan- 
cially, and the outlook for the 
coming year is exceptionally 
bright. That efforts 'of the 
board members met witli ap- 
proval of stockholders and pa- 
trons was evidenced when the 
present board, 'was re-elected 
without opposition. The only 
change made was that C. O. 
Swanson succeeded Rawlins No- 
vak as director, the latter de- 
clining re-election because of 
pressure of other affairs. The 
officers are Emil Larson, presi- 
dent; Anton Johnson, vice pres- 
ident; F. S. Erdmann, secre- 
tary; Lloyd Johnson, treasurer; 
C. O. Swanson, director. 

Following the meeting, lunch

Ohio River Valley Is 
Devastated by Floods 
T"\AYi 'by day the devastation 
■■*-' caused by great floods through- 
out the| Ohio valley and the lower 
Mississippi valley increased. Sev- 
eral hundred thousand persons were 
rendered homeless, more than 100 
lives ve're lost, and the property 
damag!,; running far into the mil- 
lions, c ihriot yet be estimated. 

Cinci inati, Louisville, Ports- 
mouth, Frankfort and Evansville 
were tl e' worst sufferers; but every 
city, town and village along the 
Ohio aid its tributaries shared in 
the disaster. Fires broke out in the 
Mill Cr :ek district of Cincinnati and 
destroyed property valued at $1,500,- 
000 bef )rVthe flames could be con- 
trolled. Throughout the entire re- 
gion ti asportation was crippled, 
pure water and fuel supplies were 
shut olEJor greatly reduced, and 
outbreaks of typhoid and pneumonia 
were threatened. In ■ Louisville the 
light aid power plant was forced 
to shut down. 

; Presiient Roosevelt directed five 
federal agencies to co-operate with 
the An ericari Red Cross in relief 
measur :s, and that organization, ap- 
pealing to the nation for $2,000,000, 
sent hundreds of nurses to the flood- 
ed area u The army sent soup kitch- 
ens anc tents and the coast guard 
sent bo its >and crews. Many cities 
forwarded supplies of food, clothing 
and me iicines. 

In Fi anlcfort, Ky.', the state re- 
format ry was flooded and the pris- 
oners ' were removed! to other 
quarters with the aid of troops. The 
convicts J took advants ge of the 
emergei cy to start a riot and about 
a dozen were killed. AH of southern 
Indiana was placed under martial 
law by [Governor Townsend and 
1,400 Rational Guardsmen were 
called : i lit. [ In the effort to save 
Cairo, 1 1., a levee was dynamited 
by^ amy [engineers despite the 
armed i esistance of farmers whose 
lands were flooded when the dike 
was bro! :en.|All women and children 
were, evacuated from the city. 
Twelve Bounties .of eastern Arkansas 
were submerged over most of their 
area anc : thousands of families were 
gatherec in refugee camps. 

Radek Eiid 16 Others Admit '• - 
Plot to Wi'eck Soviet 
J£ARL RADEK, noted soviet Rus- 
xv sian journalist, and 16 other 
men mo :e or less prominent in. the 
affairs cf Russia, went to trial as 
conspirators against 
the Stalin regime 
and the soviet state, 
and all freely con- 
fessed their guilt. 
They readily told 
tfre details of the 
amazing plot and as- 
serted that the ex- 
iled- Leon .Trotzky 
was its chief mover. 
Radek described the 

Karl.Vekl ;£ heme tt \ ***»> 
■ j i ■ the plotters hoped to 
overthrt w Stalin and bring back a 
modified [capitalism to Russia. It in- 
volved the wrecking of the nation's 
railway | 'system and the bringing 
about of| war on Russia by Japan 
and Germany. Japan " was to be 
given the maritime provinces 'in 
Asia and Germany was to be per- 
mitted ftp grab the Ukraine. But 
Radek added that the conspirators 
hoped the war would result in a 
new revolution in Russia and that 
thereafter those territories could be, 
regained! "Ij am guilty of all the 
charges!',* said the once powerful 
.editor. | I / • 

Gregori Sokolnikoff, former soviet 
ambassador |to England, declared 
he knew! as early as4932 of a plot 
to assassinate Stalin, and admitted 
he was | guilty jot' plotting to betray 
the Soviet uition to Germany and 
Japan. |padimir Romm, former 
Washington 'correspondent of Iz- 
vestjarof [ Moscow, though not yet on 
trial, was put on the stand and 
testified! [that; he knew of the anti- 
Stalinist plot, that he carried letters 
from ladek to the exiled Leon 
Trotzky^and that he agreed to be- 
come [Trotzky's undercover in- 

Leon [Trotzky, from his haven in 
Mexico Cfity, sent out a specific de- 
nial of ;the charges that he was 
head of the conspiracy. 



Cabinet Quits; 

Ugaki Is New Premier 


— I HIROTA, premier of Japan, 
anc jhis entire cabinet resigned 
after being bitterly attacked in par/ 
liament because of their militarist 
and fascist policies/ The em 
consulted Prince Saibnji, last of the 
elder statesmen, and on hisiecom- 
mendation called on Gen. Kazushige 
Ugaki, former governor general of 
' Corea, to form a new Government. 
This choice was considered a vic- 
tory fori the anti-army element, but 
the military leaders, it was ad- 
mitted, [could; still block UgaK's ef- 
forts byj refusing to provide a min- 
ister of ;war. That post must by law 
be filled' bjrl a general in active 
service a[nd a, cabinet cannot other- 
wise be: accepted. \^ 

The crisis was brought on by wide- 
spread opposition to the dominan 

of the cabinet by the army and the 
oppressively high taxes required to 
carry out the policies of the miltar- 
ists. The navy does not always side 
with the army and in this instance 
seems definitely against it. 

Gen. Ugaki, the son of j a farmer, 
;was ■ born in Okayama prefecture, 
{central [Japan. During his military 
career he served as military attache 
in Berlin, chief of the military af- 
fairs department of the war depart- 
ment, commander ,of an infantry 
regiment, president of the military 
staff college, and supreme war 

Farley Is Reappointed 
Postmaster General 
- the senate the name of James 
A. Farley as postmaster general for 
anotherl term, .and the senate 
promptly confirmed 
the nomination. It is 
believed Mr. Farley 
will not long remain 
a member of the : 
cabinet, for he wants 
to return ^o private 
work. He told report- 
ers in New York 
that he was looking 
for more than a job 
as a salesman. 

"If I should return 
to private life," the 
postmaster general said, "I would 
like an I opportunity to build up an 
equity in a business, so I would 
have something more than jusC a 
salary for security for my family. 
"I have had several' offers al-~ 
ready, but they haven't been just 
what I would want." \ 

France Offers to Help 
a Peaceful Germany 
■*• will co-operate with other nations 
in the interest: of peace, France will 
help Germany to overcome her pres- 
ent economic { difficulties. Such was 
the offer made by Premier Blum 
in an address; at Lyons. Blum, how- 
ever, warned [the Nazis that France 
cannot and will not co-operate with 
Germany economically or politically 
"while the possibility continues to 
exist that this help may be some 
day turned 'against the country 
which gave it." 

He expressed opposition to Hitler's 
policy of making bilateral pacts, 
and added: "I believe I am practic- 
ing realism when I declare we do 
not wishjto separate French security 
from European peace." . 
. German officials were- pleased 
by Blum's speech and said his good 
.intention's could not be doubted. 


Secretary Perkins Works 
on Motor Strike ! 

CES | PERKINS herself under- 
took the difficult task iof breaking 
the renewed deadlock in the Gener- 
al Motors strike, but 
at this [writing she 
had not imade much 
progress'. Governor 
Murphy | . of 'Michi- 
gan, who - went to 
Washington for the 
helped her, arrang- 
ing separate meet- 
ings with John L. 
Lewis/C. I. O. lead- 
er, /and President 
Sloan of the motor 
"corporation. But his 
efforts to bring these two gentle- 
men together! seemed futile. Lewis 
summoned Honier Martin* head of 
the striking union, and John Brophy, 
C. L p. lieutenant, from Detroit 
and conferred with them on "stra- 
tegy'?. J All the union leaders ap- 
peared [supremely confident, and 
Lewis insisted the demand that the 
union be recognized as the sole bar/' 
gaining [agency must be concedednf 
there were to be negotiations,/ 

Secretary Perkins, after/falking 
with both sides, went directly to the 
White House. She said she was 
"keeping the President informed" 
of developments. The belief was 
general|that it would be necessary 
to invoke the personal aid of Mr. 
Roosevelt to [bring about a peace- 
ful settlement. 

Lewis brought about the tempo- 
rary suspension of negotiations by 
a statement he gave the press. With 
brutal/frankness he said: 

"We have advised the secretary 
of/labor that the 'economic royal- 
ists'—and the du Ponts and Mr. 
'Sloan are among them— used their 
money to try to drive Mr. Roose- 
velt out of the White House. 

"Labor rallied to the Presidents, 
support| when : they attacked him./' 

"These same economic royalists 
now have their fangs in labor/and 
labor now expects the government 
to support labor in its legal and logi- 
cal objectives." 

Laterj Secretary Perkins invited 
Sloan and the union leaders to a 
peace conferepce. Martin accepted 
but the p. M. C. head declined, again 
insisting the strikers must first evac- 
uate the company's plants. 

General Motors officials called on 
about 40,000 workers to return to ten 
plants in Michigan and '■ Indiana, 
which were to be reopened. 

T OFTY ideals, beautifully worded 
'-'and eloquently| voiced. That 
a fair description of 
inaugural address of 
Roosevelt. Standing 
bareheaded on the 
capitol portico in a 
cold, pelting rain!, 
he took the [oath of 
office administered 
by black jrobed 
Chief Justice 
Hughes, ■ and then^ 
in ringing | words 
carried by radio to 
the ends [of the 
earth, he pledged 
his administration 
to carry on | its fight for the social 
security and material prosperity 
and happiness/of the entire people 
of the UnitecVStates. In effect, he 
promised that the [federal govern- 
ment wouldl bring \ about a better 
life for one-third of the nation now 
underprivileged, and that the pro- 
gram of planned economy would be 
continued. For foijty millions who 
are not getting their share of the 
nation's material benefits, the gov- 
ernment will provide home^ food, 
clothing, education/ recreation and 
increased incomes. . 

The President's listeners inter- 
preted some of his phrases as a 
challenge to [the Supreme court, as 
when he said: 

"Nearly all of us recognize that 
as intricacies of human relation- 
ships increase, so power to govern 
them also must increase— power to 
stop evil; power to do good. The 
essential democracy of our nation 
and the safety of our people depend 
upon lodging it with those whom 
the people can change or continue 
at stated intervals through an hon- 
est and free system of elections. 
The constitution of 1787 did -not 
make our democracy impotent. 

"In fact, in these last four years, 
we have made the| exercise of all 
power more | democratic; for -we 
have begun ^o bring private auto- 
cratic powers into their proper sub- 
ordination to the public's govern- 
ment. The .legend [that they were 
invincible — above and beyond the 
processes of | democracy— has been 
shattered. They have been chal- 
lenged and beaten. V 

Before the inauguration cere- 
monies, Mr.i Roosevelt and mem- 
bers of his family attended a special 
service in [St. John's.- Episcopal 
church. After delivering his address 
the President reviewed the military 
parade from a cupola built in front 
of the White House; In addition to 
the : soldiers, sailors and marines, 
samples of the Civilian Conserva- 
tion; corps arid of the Nationa? Youth 
administration were in' the line, as 
were the governors 'of 46 states with 
their staffs. I I 

Congress Extends President's 
Control Over theDollar 
pONGRESS did not wait .'or the 
*-* inauguration to rush • through 
the 'bill asked by the President ex- 
tending for jtwo and one-half years 
his i power I to control the two 
billion dollar stabilization fund and 
to devalue the dollar. Senator Van- 
denberg and Representative Snell, 
minority leaders, made futile ef- 
forts to amend the measure so that 
it would call on the [secretary of the 
treasury to[ submit to congress a 
complete audit and report upon 
the operations of the fund after tht 
expiration date in 1939. 


Howard Hughes Sets New

HOWARD - HUGHES, wealthy 
manufacturer,' motion picture 
producer and amateur aviator, set 
a new record for j the flight from 
Burbank, Calif., to New York— 7 
hours 28 minutes, j 25 .seconds. It 
was! an astonishing performance. 

Hughes' average] speed for 2,490 
miles over what he calls a "modi-, 
fled | great circle/cburse" was 332 
miles per hour./ This achievement 
is Uie greatest sustained speed 
flight ever>made. J . . 

' The flight was made without a 
stop^ the cruising altitude being 
about 14,000[ feet, and the motor of 
the^plane could not be allowed to 
^operate at [ full throttle for more 
than a small fraction of the time. 
The! top speed . reached was 380

Ask 20 Perj Cent Raise 

REPRESENTATIVES' of five rail- 
way brotherhods who have 
been in conference in Chicago de- 
cided to demand ! a 20 per cent 
raise in wakes for! the members of 
those unions', numbering about 250;- 
000. [ These'; are employees in the 
train service classification — conduc- 
tors, engineers, firemen, trainmen 
and; switchmen. 

Based, on | the October, 1938, pay 
roll [ statistics issued, by the inter- 
state commerce commission, a 20 
per [cent pay raise for these work- 
ers j would' require an increase of 
'116 million dollars in the annual pay 
rolls of the country's railroads.

Introducing Janet. 

Janet in her jumper (Pattern 
1996) is asking Mother which 
glassware to use. Her plaid blouse 
;in taffeta makes; her| feel very 
jdressed up. Mother ''chose, this 
style because the many possibili- 
ties for change make it a ward- 
robe rather than a -dress and she 
knew it would be easy-to-make.. 
Your own little girl may have 
this same ensemble in sizes 6, 8, 
10, 12, and 14 years. Size 8 re- 
quires 1% yaTds of 39 inch ma- 
terial for the jumper and 1% 
yards for the blouse. 

Mother, the Hostess. 

Mother j is the perfect hostess, 
calm and assured, because she 
knows her all-occasion frock with 
its sprightly crisp apron (Pattern 
1220) is becoming and appropri- 
ate. For house wear she made 
up this model in print. She is 
wearing here the crepe version 
and knows that it will be delight- 
ful for later on in cool black and 
white. It comes in sizes 34, 36, 
38, 40, 42, 44, and 46. The dress 
and apron in size 36 require 5% 
yards of 39 inch material. The 
apron alone requires 1 % yards. 
And the Guest. 

The guest just arriving is wear- 
ing her itrigest Sew-Your-Own. 
She likes i it because the puffed 
shoulders I and swing skirt make 
her hips look smaller. The collar 
is young and the sleeves stylish. 
This frock is especially chic in 
silk crepe alpaca or one of the 
^ovely new prints. For your own 
daytime distinction, then, why not 
make up Pattern 1205? It is avail- 
able in sizes 14, 16, 18, and 20

National (Topics Interpreted 

by William Bruckart 

Washington.J-The arrival of the 
first robin is only a sign of the com- 
ing of spring. If 
Danger doesi not bring 
Sign* spring weather. 

Nevertheless, we 
Americans wa':ch for signs all our. 
lives and lately there have been sev- 
eral of them in national affairs that 
are worthy of notice. | 

There never | has been a time in 
our country's history, ' as far as I 
have been able to discover, when 
the tension surrounding labor con- 
ditions has been as dangerous as it 
is right now. I do not believe any- 
one can forecast what the results 
are going to b|e; what all of these 
strikes and factional fights in or- 
ganized labor mean and I am con- 
vinced that they represent some- 
thing much deeper than just dis- 
satisfaction with wages or growing 
pains of expanding business. In 
other words, there are many stu- 
dents of national affairs who are 
attempting to analyze current labor 
conditions as signs of new times. 

Most observers with whom I have 
discussed the present! labor prob- 
lems, are hopeful that these trou- 
bles mean only continued increases 
in the demand for labor. That is, 
they want to accept these signs as 
indicative of ajreturning and sound 
prosperity in commerce and indus- 
try. Yet, none [of them lis quite sure. 
There* are too |many ''ifs" and too 
many uncertainties for anyone to 
attempt a complete diagnosis of the 
circumstances. 1 'I 

Some' weeks ago I ventured the 
opinion in these columns 1 that the 
rift in organized labor between Wil- 
Jiam Green, as hea'd of the Ameri- 
can Federation of Labor and John 
L. fiewis as sponsor of the indus- 
trial union idea, likely! would result 
in seriousMrouble for the labor un- 
ions themselves. , I was unable to 
report then thaVWhich I can write 
at this time, 1 namely, that! the 
schism in organized labor appears 
certain to set back theXcause of 
organized labor many years. In- 
deed, it seern^ that the splitStan- 
gled as it is with partisan politics, 
may prove to be the uncharted rock" 
in union labor's course and its ship 
may founder on it. '- 
• • .♦ 

But the situation is fraught with 

graver possibilities, I am sure. 

_ | There are ele- 

u * ave , | ments and influ- 

Possibilities ences at work in 
! the labor situation 
today that easily could lead to riots 
and bloodshed. From riots and 
bloodshed it is only a step to revo- 
lution of a political sort. 

None here knows exactly what 
the administration's labor policies 
are beyond the exaggerated prom- 
ises made during . the last Presi- 
dential campaign. Of course, Pres- 
ident Roosevelt and the bulk of his 
New Deal spokesmen are exceed- 
ingly friendly, pverfriendly some be- 
lieve, to organized labor. The New 
Dealers had organized labor with 
them in the last campaign. Now, 
however, it is made to appear that 
the support of labor in the cam- 
paign is proving more or less em- 
the administration 
started on its second 

barrassing to 
which has just _ 
four-year term. 

Some of the 
istration are 

critics of the admin- 

— outspoken in their 

statements that Mr. Roosevelt is 
trying to dodge, trying to avoid, get- 
ting mixed up jtoo deeply in labor's 
problems. Sornje of his subordinates 
have been active but the President 
has stayed out of the picture just 
as far , as he could and as long as 
he could. ! 

I am inclined to believe that these 
assertions that Mr. Roosevelt is 
afraid to take leadership too fre- 
quently in labor's problems are un- 
fair to. the President. They amount 
to a statement that he lacks cour- 
age—which is not true. On the con- 
trary, there are many who believe 
with me that Mr. Roosevelt senses 
developments yet to arise in the la- 
bor' situation and he is, therefore, 
being cautious I as to is steps thus 
early in what; threatens to be a 
national labor crisis. . 

On the other hand, it is difficult to 
explain why the national labor rela- 
tions board has been so nearly qui- 
escent through! such strikes as the 
plate glass and; portions of the auto- 
mobile 'workers. 

If there ever was a situation 
made to order for use of the agency 
set up under the so-called Wagner 
law, that situation was to be found 
in the two strikes just mentioned. 
The board did so little in those cir- 
cumstances that its existence can 
be said to have been forgotten. It 
amounted to a dead letter insofar 
as the law itself is concerned. In 
some quarters one can hear discus- 
sion to the effect that sponsors of 
the national labor relations act and 
board were unwilling to have that 
agency and the law receive a real 
test at this time. I have been unv 
able to confirm this thought at all 
but frankly the circumstances' that 
one sees indicate there is some 
truth in the rumor that too much of 
a burden should not be unloaded on 
the board for its first real test. 

Business interests never have be- 

lieved the law 

to be constitutional; 

Iht New Dealers, however, have 

contended vpciferoi sly that it it 
valid and yet we have the | picture 
of a New Deal agency failing to 
perform the veryl functions for 
which it was created. 
! * * '* 

I mentioned earlier some of the 
signs and portents that are visible 

„,,. _ „ in!the labor situa- 

"Stt Down" ticm.. One of the 
Strikew ; most important of 
I these is the sig- 
nificance of the "sit; down" j type of 
strike. I find many informed au- 
thorities who| refer to the "sit down" 
strike as. a key point in present la- 
bor problems. .1 | 

It is something new in this coun- 
try. It is a program of striking in 
which labor is entirely passive but 
by which it usurps the rights| of own- 
ership. The porkers simply stay in 
the plants, offering |no trouble and 
for the most I part' avoiding destruc- 
tive tactics. ! But it is the fact that 
they remain in the plants, the prop- 
erty of their employers, that 'is caus- 
ing considerable worry in govern- 
ment circlesj | ' 

The reason why j this phase of 
strike tactics is creating concern 
lies in the fact that; it amounts to 
the seizure of private property by 
individuals who haye no right or 
warrant in law. It would j be the 
same thing as far as legal rights 
are concerned if a group of strikers 
went to your home or mine and 
announced they expected to stay 
there. There is no difference in 
the two situations. While jthe ef- 
fect on you [or me would be less 
important to the country as a whole, 
it remains as a fact[ that our rights 
would be violated jin exactly the 
same manner as rights of corpora- 
tions were violated, say, in the Gen- 
eral Motors strike. | After all, you 
and I are merely units of the great 
mass of people that make 1 up the 
United States of America. Now, it 
takes no great stretch of the imagi- 
nation to recognize that if union 
labor establishes its ability to oc- 
cupy the property of [others and fixes 
that as a precedent, Ithen where are 
the rights of any person who owns 
^property. It matters not whether 
it is a small 1 cottage, a farm home 
or a great industrial plant— the right 
to own property, guaranteed to us 
by the Constitution j of the! United 
States, is virtually nullified, j 

One of the rights of American cit- 
izenship is a right j to own prop- 
erty. It is j a principle that has 
grown to be! sacred with us since 
the Boston tea parjty. Yet, it is 
being challenged and thus far the 
federal government j has made I no 
move to break it up. As long as 
employers organize and tread on la- 
bor with a steel, boot, ju'ti so long 
the workers are entitled to organize 
to combat mistreatment from busi- 
ness. But it does not seem to me to 
be a right of! labor' to actually take 
private; property. To that extent I 
cannot feel very, kindly toward those 
strikers at present asserting" such a 
right through use of the "sit down" 
strike. ! , 

Now, there are reasons why the 
federal government jhas not acted. 
If troops were sent into private fac- 
tories to drive out the "sit, down" 
strikers, one pan readily see what a 
riot would result. But if the federal 
government fails to enforce this inr 
herent right; it is] not doing it» 
sworn duty to the rest of the people. 
And it was only a few weeks ago 
that Mr. Roosevelt [again took the 
oath of office as President, swearing 
to enforce as well I as defend the 
Constitution. ] I • . I : 

Then, another phase of the situa- 
tion is being i discussed. The Wag- 
ner law says ; employers must nego- 
tiate collectively "with the | major- 
ity" organization of 'employees and 
it decrees further that the labor re- 
lations board! shall determine which 
is the majority organization; that 
it can decide this question on evi- 
dence or order an election among 
employees. None can tell usually 
whether union or company organiza- 

tion employees are in the major- 
ity in some of these strikes, so the 
labor relations board has kept out of 
them. | 

Taking, this labor situation as a 
whole, I believe I am justified in 
saying, as I said darlier, that it 
portends a crisis. Preaching of class 
hatred has been the! Tnait, occupa- 
tion of certain elements in the last 
three or four years and now those 
elements , are reaping what they 
sowed. The; tragedy of it all is 
that the rest of. us I have to reap 
the same reward. |

People Who Drop Coins in Tin 
- Cans for Sweet Charity 

HARDLY a week passes in 
this country without the 
inauguration of some sort of 
drive, the object of which is to 
secure funds for benevolent 
purposes. So general has be- 
come the custom that munici- 
palities have found it necessary 
to establish regulations under 
which money may t e collected 
and accounted for. 

After many experimisnts made to 
simplify the business of receiving 
voluntary contribution!, the sealed 
tin can, slotted for the reception of 
coin or currency, and bearing a 
plainly printed statement as to what 
particular organization or institution 
is behind the drive, hi is come' into 
general use. 

Women and young ;;irls are the 
most successful collectors of lar- 
gess for the benefit of suffering hu- 
manity. While it is not obligatory 
upon citizens to respond, none the 
less a pleasant smile[ and a soft 
voice, plus an appealing look is an 
influence of proven value. 

Quite recently at trie peak of a 1 
drive, worthy in every way of gen- 
erous public response^ I returned 
to New York after a long absence, 
entering Manhattan via the Penn- 
sylvania station. One of a dozen 
pretty girls, all armed with tin 
banks and enameled tjuttons, asked 
for a contribution. "Whatever you 
wish to give,"/ said she. "We are 
grateful no matter I what the 
amount." , j. I 

From a vest pocket I produced 
several subsidiary coins and held 
out my hand: 'an invitation for her 
.to help herself. She selected a 
quarter, fixed upon th? lapel of my 
coat an unobtrusive jutton which 
established mj» as a member of the 
club, and expressed her thanks..

this symbol the remainder of the 
week," she said, "for the reason 
that the drive will go[ on for that 
period and we want 1 he publicity. 
Also it shows that j ou have re- 
sponded and [that nothing more is 
expected of ithe wear'er. It is in- 
surance against further appeals. 
Really if people only! knew that, 
with an investment of riot more 
than the cost of a cigar, the initial 
cost of a badge; a butjton or a rib- 
bon, they ' could render themselves 
immune against what many regard 
as an annoyance for the duration 
of a drive. These things have just 
got to be done if humanity is to

my putting it[ that way " ' 

Here was a girl of good sense, 
contributing her own time without 
fee, and as I learned 'immediately 
with no little! pride in the part she 
played. : |" 

She would . be easy to interview. 

"What percentage of those you ask 
to contribute respond with money?" 
I asked. i 

"About one j in six, ' i little less 
than 20 per cent, and in amounts 
ranging -from five cents to a quar- 
ter; occasionally fifty cents or a. 
dollar bill. About half of those who 
pay tell me to! keep the button and 
sell it again. But to that I say 
'no, you must wear if so that others 
may know that you approve.' No 
man who is willing to help should 
>be ashamed of having done so." 

"Who respond the rnore readily, 
men or women?" , 

Women More Generous 

"Men as a rule, bul women are 
more generous Twhen ttey do come 
in. In any case the midtlle class can 
be depended upon to make the best 
showing. I am!; sorry [to say that 
many* people who from their / at- 
tire and manne^ seem [to represent 
the prosperous class are -downright 
rude at even the suggestion that 
they should be included[in the trivial 
assessment for the "goqji of others. 
It is heartening I to find that there 
are some who come forward with- 
out' being asked, to volunteer a con- 
tribution. One man, who from visi- 
ble evidence appeared! to be not 
overly prosperous; gavgine a twenty 
dollar bill, but absolutely declined 
to wear a button.! 'It w[ill save you 
from being approached again,' I 
urged. 'Oh, I don'tobjeict to that!" 
he replied. It -won't be hard to give 
something to the ' next) collector.* 
Men of that sort are! few and far 
between, however."; ■ I ! 

"The average daily total?" 

The girl shrugged her| shoulders. 
"Well the weather always has 
something to do with 'giving: Per- 
haps you will be surprised to hear 
that rainy days, are; the] best. In- 
stead of being chilled and depressed 
by gloom, a great 'many people

that anything is worth I worrying

Maintain Horses in Good 
Flesh, Authority Urges 

It is poor economy to bring 
horses through the winter in a thin 
condition and then attempt to put 
them in good flesh by feeding lib- 
erally after the working season has 
begun, says W. H. Peters, chief ol 
the animalhusbandry division at 
University^ Farm, St. Paul. 

Horses should maintain their 
weight or be in a gaining condition 
throughout the winter, Mr. Peters 
states, so jthat they will enter the 
spring work season in shape to' 
furnish efficient animal power. 
They may| be brought through the 
winter satisfactorily on low grade 
roughages! but' farmers should 
watch them carefully to see that 
they are maintaining their weight. 
If not, thi roughages should; be 
supplemented by 6 to 9 pounds of 
farm grains daily for each animal.. 
If good roughages are" available, 

the horses 

will remain in good

tjhe question whether the mid-win-

car had a heater. Persons who 
witnessed the incident, were amaz-

up at a curb, and stand on the

Minnesota has more persons on 
old age pensions in proportion to 
population than all other states 
except, Colorado, Oklahoma and 
Texas, the Citizens' Tax Belief As- 
sociation pointed out in' a report 
received here today analyzing the 
growing cost of new governmental 
burdens ini this state, i 

Latest records show that Minne- 
sota has 292 persons on old age as- 
sistance for every 1,000 persons 65 
years old, John' F. Scott, president 
of the association, said, and the 
percentage is i growing monthly. 
That is more than twice the num- 
ber on the pension' roljs in Iowa 
and nearly three times !the number 
in Michigan, the report disclosed. 

Wisconsin has only 159 persons 
on the pension foils for! every 1,000 
persons 65 years old. Illinois has 
163, and Indiana only 121. 

The.' money paid out jin old age 
pensions in Minnesota now is more 
than $1,068,000' a month, Mr. Scott 
said, or about] 50 per! cent more 
than in Michigan. Fully 56,696 per- 
sons in Minnesota now are receiv- 
ing old age pensions or 34.3 per 
cent of those oyer 65 years of age, 
and at the present rate of increase 
the number soon will reach 60,000, 
with an annual cost of $15,000,000. 

Mr. Scott said the • association 
did not wish to oppose the grant- 
ing of old age pensions or say that 
an undue number had been granted 
in Minnesota, liut thatj it desired 
merely! to present the facts and ask 
taxpayers to consider j where the 
state is going With this and other 
new obligations it has! undertaken. 




State officials 'and representa- 
tives of the Red j Jjake river im- 
provement committee explained 
plans for conserving water of the 
Red river of the ; North drainage 
basin before a joint meeting of 
the house and senate drainage 
committee in St. Paul Tuesday. 

M. M. Orfield, assistant attor- 
ney general outlined A proposed 
bill to create a" tri-state ^waters 
commission, which would '"require 
concurrence by the] legislatures of 
North and South Dakota. 

Costs of construction and opera- 
tion of a series of dams or any 
other means the committee may 
decide upon to control the waters 
of the area would be borne by the 
municipalities benefitted. The 'tri-- 
state commission would consist of 
nine members, three from .each 
state, appointed by the legisla- 
tures of the respective states. 

Each state would appropriate 
funds for administrative 'expenses 
as fixed by the committee and on 
a basis of value to be received 
■from activities of the commission. 
Frederic Bass, chairman of the 
state board of health, said that 
the public health is endangered by

•Detroit Lakes — A mail-order 
sweetheart, w*as ' jilted at a bus 
depot here, but she refused to be- 
lieve that her love had been scorn- . 
ed by a local man .who, she had 
been told, would make her a good 
husband. The man had sent her 
money for transportation, together 
with ' a letter which promised 
everything — perhaps even a little 
slice of the moon. The alleged 
lover wrote he was counting the 
minutes and seconds until she ar- 
rived. He told her he would be 
waiting for her at the bus station 
and from there, he vowed, they 
would rush without delay to a 
justice of the peace to be married. 
Enchanted by the letter and with 
its words tingling her imagina-. 
tion, the girl lost little time in 
reaching Detroit Lakes. But when 
she stepped from the bus, no 
open-armed Romeo embraced her. 
No one greeted her. She re-read 
the letter with its bcautiftd. as- 
surances and banished the thought 
that the affectionate sentences, 
were only sweet nothings. With 
$2.50 of the S3.00 which she had 
in her purse she registered at a 
hotel for one night and then, 
without eating, spent two davs in 
the hotel lobby.. With her last 
fifty cents she bought gas for the 
car of a stranger, whom she per- 
suaded to help her .search for the 
missing boy friend.- The fourth

railroad ticket back to her homo, 
gave her a dollar for food utid a 
patrolman took her to the stiitiim.

jThe heaviest snowfall of me 
present winter blanketed north- 
western Minnesota with six 
inches or more of the "beauti- 
ful" Sunday and Monday. At 
the same time, a snow storm 
of blizzard proportions tied up 
railway and highway traffic in 
western and southern Minne- 
sota as well as part's of North 
Dakota and Iowa. The snow 
farther south and west appear- 
ed to be mixed considerably 
with soil so it packed hard, mak- 
ing clearing of roads difficult. 
The snow here was very light 
despite its depth, and auto traf- 
fic was not stopped altho it was 
slowed up. Highway crews 
starting out Monday night and 
Tuesday morning, opened all 
the main roads in this, section 
of the state. Attendance at the 
Winter Shows at Crookston was

GENERAL MOTORS and city pc-

violent conflict with strikers there 
i and the |sheriff decided he couldn't 
handle the situation, so he called on 
the governor for troops. The Na- 
tional Guard of the state was mo- 
bilized and the units already in Flint 
moved into the strike zone and 
formed a | military blockade. They 
were ordered to clear the area 
around' We plants but not to enter 
.'the buildings unless there was re- 
newed yidlence. 
! (This outbreak came while Judge 

t'~ ul Gadola was hearing argu- 
ints for| and against an injunction 
eject the sit-down strikers from

The violence resulted in a new 
siWown strike in a Chevrolet plant 
and the [announcement by the union

corporation had been called back to

tants along the riv- 
er between Cairo, 
HI., and New Or- 
leans.! The details 
for .this mass move- 
ment jwere] worked out to the last 
point by commanding officers in the 
region and thousands of I motor 
trucks and railroad flat cars were 
collected. Headquarters for the 
evacuation were setup at Jackson, 
Miss. | 

The] secretary of war authorized 
the use of not only regular army 
troops] but also members of the 
Civilian Conservation corps, the Na- 
tional [Guard, and the Red Cross. 

General Craig said that if the bil- 
lion dollar] levee system, erected 
after the great 1927 flood, failed to 
hold, about the same, area affected 
then , ^vould be inundated. Many 
thousands [ of people already had 
been removed from homes along the 
Mississippi, but cities like Memphis^ 
and jVicksburg, being on high, 
ground,^ were believed to be^safe. 

At this writing the effects of the 
flood'' [may be thus summarized: 
Homeless, j nearly a million. Dead, 
'probably more thajr 500, including 
200 in Louisville. Jjamage, conserv- 
atively estimated at more than $400, 
000,000. | / 

Congress^hurried through a defi- 
ciency/appropriation of $5,990,000 
whichfthe President promised would 
be/made available for flood relief; 
.and the American Red Cross, work- 
ing at high speed, was raising a fund 
of $l6,000J00O to which the people 
of the entire country contributed 
liberally. ] Supplies of food, drink- 
ing water, clothing and medicines 
were poured into the stricken areas. 

Paducah was completely evacuat- 
ed, arid most of the inhabitants of 
Cairo were removed. The flood wat- 
ers at[the latter city were creeping 
up close to the top of the rein- 
forced levees and it was feared 
the protections would not be suffi- 
cient. | 

Harry Hopkins,' WPA administra- 
tor, and other members of the spe- 
cial flood relief committee named 
by President Roosevelt, went to the 
flood areas with the expressed in- 
tention of seeing that the job of car- 
ing for the refugees was well done. 
Mr. Hopkins indicated he was pre- 
paredj to spend $790,000,000— the en- 
tire deficiency work relief budget — 
for flood relief if necessary. 

Accompanying Mr. Hopkins were 
Maj. Edward T. Markham, chief'of 
army | engineers; Surgeon General 
Thomas Ijarrah, Jr.; James'F. Fei- 
ser, vice chairman of the Red 
CrossJ an]d Colonel F. C. Harring- 
ton, Jr., WPA engineer. 

Japan Army, Supports 
Hayashi as Premier 

GENERAL, UGAKI having aban- 
doned the attempt to form a 
new cabinet |for Japan because of 
opposition by the 
army, the emperor 
entrusted the task to 
Gen Senjuro Hayas- 
hi, former minister 
of -war. | He made 
concessions to the 
arm^ and navy and 
appeared likely to 
succeed- in getting a 
cabinet together 
which would stand 
up. | | 

Lieut, pen. Kotaro 
Nakamura, bureau 
military] education 
board, accepted the post of minister 
of warJ He is one of the so-called 
"big three" 'of the army, a clique 
which fought] and prevented the for- 
mation [of a cabinet by Ugaki. 

Vice [Admiral Mifsumasa Yoriai, 
commander of the combined fleets, 
agreed [to accept the[nayy ministry. 
Industrial leaders in Tokio believe 
that under General Hayashi, the 
promotion of national defense and 
the strengthening of [continental pol- 
icy wil} be the basis of the admin- 
istration, and that jan increase in 
the budget is inevitable.

^tenancy could not b[e corrected

ant farmers who would buy farms. 
It [strongly opposed the establish-

law enacted to relieve tenancy, evils 
should be {based upon I a system, of 
sound credit extended] over a long

The resolution asserted that "in

! National Topics Interpreted ffifW 


Washington. — I have said in these 
columns many times that politics is 
a business. If any- 

Politic* body desires proofs 

Is Basinets of that statement' 
I think I am able 
now to offer the best possible: evi- 
dence of the truth of that statement. 
■ Lately, W. Forbes Morgan, treas- 
urer of the Democratic national 
committee, has j demonstrated be- 
yond the shadow/of a doubt what 
politics as a/business actually 
means. ; He>did so in the recent an- 
nouncerflenry that; the Democratic 
national/committee would seek to 
buildup a "war chest" of $10,000,000 
thar the vast New Deal party jna- 
ilunery can go onj at top speed; that 
the momentum gained by the suc- 
cessful Presidential campaign of 
1936 can be maintained and that the 
party can continue to function as a 
cohesive unit through which millions 
of voters may speak. . ./ 

It appears that Mr. Morgan will 
not succeed in getting anything like 
$10,000,000 together but' it is very 
significant that he>is thinking in 
terms so large as^those mentioned 
in his announcement. It means sim- 
ply that the/present control of the 
New Deal/party; | is determined to 
carry out to the nth degree the the- 
ory of/its chairman, James A. Far- 
ley,/only recently reappointed as 
postmaster general of the United 
States. ;| I 

Mr. Farley plays politics in ex- 
actly the same! I manner, that he 
would engage inj a business ven- 
ture. He takes ;chances when the 
stakes are high, tie knows his men, 
his workers, and moreover, he 
knows' how to get the best results 
out of the material he has. His 
operations are not unlike the 4 funcr 
tions of a sales manager of a'great 
concern— he sells what he has to the 
voters and if any j salesman fails to 
function, Mr. Farley looks for re^ 
placements. j • 

We might illustrate the Farley 
methods further by reviewing some 
of the methods he employed in the 
last four yeirs. F^r, when it comes 
to raising money, the Democratic 
national committee, under Chair- 
man Farley, is both businesslike and 
versatile. It will| be recalled how 
whenever the pretext arose, the 
Democratic national committee 
sponsored such things as dinners 
to which the faithful partisans' 
were asked to buy tickets, usu-; 
ally high priced tickets, for an 
srdinary banquet. ' It will be re- 
called also ho\y elaborate pro- 
grams of the Democratic national 
convention were jsold by the hun- 
dreds of thousands; how those -pro- 
grams were loaded to the gunwhales 
with advertising | of concerns that' 
could not well refuse to buy adver- 
tising space; how 'victory dinners' 
were given, and how finally the in- 
augural ceremony when Mr. Roose-; 
velt took office was turned into a : 
gigantic political j rally that spread 
itself into every hotel in Washington 
that had/space for great dinners 
and dances. These things are but a 
few which demonstrated the Farley 
versatility but they prove to my 
nrind that if the Democratic na- 
tional committee sets out to build 
up a real "war chest," it will ac- 
complish exactly its objective. 

remembered that approximately 
18,000,000 voters cast their | ballots 
_fdr the Republican] presidential 
'nominee, Governor Landon of Kan- 
sas. That is not a small number, 
any way you examine it. It is a 
powerful segment of jthe American 
population but it is powerful jonly to 
the extent that its leadership devel- 
ops enthusiasm for the fight and ca- 
pacity to take it on the chin when 
victory goes the other way. I 

Among the New Dealers who can 
be classified as sound politicians, 
there is considerable j regret! at the- 
failure of the Republican leadership 
to get going. President Roosevelt, 
himself, would like to see mbre op- 
position because it would make his 
task much easier andjwould prevent 
some of the unsound legislation 
from seeping through congress on 
account of a lack of opposition. Fur- 
thermore, if there wjere more Re- 
publican fight, there jwould be less 
chance of splits in the Democratic 
ranks in congress.] Democratic 
fear of 

The committee 

pretentious yet attempted by any 
political organization. It has a large 

and exceedingly 

set-up is the most 

efficient staff of 

trained men and women and it runs 
like the well oiled machine that it is. 
It will cost money to keep 
that machine running at high 
speed, but Mr: Farley recog- 
nizes how elections are won. His 
philosophy is that the early bird 
catches the worm arid so, al- 
though there is not another election 
for two years, the Democratic na- 
tional committee' is making ready 
for that election campaign right 
now. Unless thejwise political stu- 
dents aroundsSVashington are badly 
mistaken, Mr. Farley will i know 
pretty well whenj the congressional 
and senatorial candidates take to 
the stump early | in 1938 just what 
the last two 1 years of the Roosevelt 
administration will be like. It goes 
without saying that he will be pre- 
pared for them. I

cits for losing political parties are 
not as easily financed as. United 
States Treasury deficits these days 
and so Mr. Hamilton is having his 
troubles in that | direction as well 
as finding any enthusiasm among 
Republican party] workers. 

But that does not excuse the Re- 
publican national committee nor 
Mr. Hamilton. After all, it is to be 

leaders entertain a very real 
this possibility. 

From among Jhe corps of politi- 
I hear 


'dead on their 

cal writers in Washington, 

much criticism of 
the Republicans 
whc are variously 
described as being 
feetl" They are 
certainly doing less than nothing. 
They have allowed the Democratic 
national committee to carry the ball 
on every play; they nave offered no 
publicity by way of criticism of N< 
Deal programs and ihey have/de- 
veloped no plans at all for reviving 
the Republican' organization! or re- 
storing life to the party ^workers. 

I am not saying th]a/Mr. Hamil- 
ton is wholly to blame for th'is con- 
dition. He must accept responsi- 
bility, however, because he is the 
titular head of the organizat on. It 
would seem, therefore, that unless 
Mr. Hamilton awakens and shows 
some fight./fhere will be fewer Re- 
publicans/in the' house or senate 
after thj/1938 elections than there 
are nojtf. The national chair nan of 
the Republicans,' according to all 
discussion that I hear, sooner or 
later will have to start cooking or 
depart from the kitchen. Otherwise, 
the 18,000,000 voters ]which the Re- 
publican party has J as a nucleus 
upon which to build will become so 
badly disorganized, so disheartened 
and discouraged, that it will be im- 
possible to reunite them. j 

Part of the Republicans' difficul- 
ties are traceable directly to Capi- 
tol Hill. I simply 'cannot [under- 
stand why Senator McNary of Ore- 
gon, continues to serve as Republi- 
can leader in the senate when, in 
the opinion of most' observers, he 
has failed to justify his titleiin any 
way. It will be recalled that he did 
nothing in behalf of Governor :Lan- 
don's candidacy against Mr. j Roose- 
velt. Nor has he sh'own either the 
capacity or the desire to carry on 
as an opposition leader should cany 
on since the new congress convened. 
■ Again, this is not' the fault of 
Chairman Hamilton. 1 Frankly, I 
think it is the fault of the few Re- 
publicans in the senate. If they had 
any fight in them, or any faith in 
their party label, they would insist 
upon a militant leadership on their 
side of the senate chamber, small as 
their number is. 

There are much greater signs of 
fight among the house Republicans. 
, They are ! trying 
Signs of to ; make ] them- 
Fifjht selyes heard, but 

the' preponder- 
ance Of Democratic strength in the 
house coupled with ]the gag rules 
which have been appliedwithout stint 
or limit by the Democratic majority, 
precludes Republican leader Snell 
and his associates from doing very 
much for their party in the! house. 
Where senators have the privilege of 
unlimited debate, House members 
are allotted time and lately the time 
allotted to the Republicans has been 
infini tesimal. That, of course, is one 
of the spoils af victory and the Dem- 
ocrats cannot be blamed fori assert- 
ing their. power. j ; 

But the point of it all is that while 
Democratic Chairman Farley has 
his team on. its toes, ;full of fight, 
ready to go, Chairinan Hamilton 
has not even been vopal personally, 
much less has he been able; to stir 

up fight among his 

associates. It 

is a situation from which most any- 
thing may emerge. Mr. Hamilton 
sought and was given a vote of con- 
fidence by his own ; national com- 
mittee shortly after the election. He 
cannot say now that his hands are 
tied insofar as the authority of lead- 
ership is concerned. ] So; it is made 
to appear that, unless the 'present 
leaders of the Republicans: really 
enter the arena, unless they show 
their, ability to carry the fight to 
the enemy, it seems rather likely 
that new leaders will come from the 
ranks of the Republicans and the 
present group will , becomje . has- 
beens, ill'

learn that he had persuaded United 
Artists to grant him leave of ab- 
sence from his important job as

an acting role of secondary import

Any girl who can make an out- 
standing hit in a picture in which 
the smoothly expert Myrna Loy and 
William Powell appear is not just 
good, she is marvelous. That is 
what directors on the M; G. M. lot 
have been telling Dorotliy McNulty 
ever since her appearance in "After 
the Thin Man" made| audiences 
burst into spontaneous applause. In 
the midst of all the enthusiasm over 
her at the studio, everyone neg- 
lected to make sure that she had 
been put under contract.' She didn't 
mention it because nobody asked 
her. And Paramount . slyly came 
along and signed her np for their 
pictures. | .

Avoid Unhealthy Dry Air — Keep 

Radiator Humidifier Pans 

Filled With Water. 

\yf ANY winter colds are caused 
*" by hot, dry air in the home 
while the season for burning the 
furnace is on. Heat, of course, 
absorbs the moisture in the air. 
This hot air also dries out and 
damages furniture. 

You can easily and inexpensively 
provide! for air-moisture by keep- 
ing a "pan hurnidifier,". or hot 

water pan, filled with water in 
each room of your home. Designed 
to hang put of sight on the backs 
of radiators, these pans furnish 
water th]at can be evaporated by 
the radiaW heat and provide mois- 
ture for the air in the rooms. This 
prevents] the air from becoming 
too dry and lessens the chance of 
catching] or spreading colds. 

Warm I air heating plants' are 
equipped with humidifier pans. All 
you havfe to do is to keep them 
filled with fresh water. ■ i

Wafted in; on wings of a 40 
mile wind which started shortly 
after noon (last Saturday, a real 
oldtime blizzard swept over 
western arid 1 ; central Minnesota 
and parts lof North Dakota. 
The storm Continued unabated 
until after Imidnight, blockading, 
all side roads and parts of the 
trunk system. Several motor- 
ists staled [between here and 
Red Lake Falls and we're com- 
pelled to abandon their ma- 
chines and s^ek shelter. Twenty 
or more people from surround- 
ing territory^ who had been 
here and at jThief River before 
the storm, were compelled to 
spend the night with friends in 
the village before venturing out 
to try the drifted roads. 
• Efficient work on the part of 
the state highway department 
snow remova'l crews, opened the 
trunk roadsj : Sunday morning, 
but trouble. was experienced on- 
many side roads because of 
hveakdown [ of the county plow. 
Both school | ; busses operating 
out of here liave had much dif- 
ficulty in making their route? 
on scheduled . time because of 
drifting ■ snow following the 
storm. Fortunately there was 
a good supply of fuel on hand 
so there was no suffering here 
on that account.

lv recovering- from effects 'of

tion took a s'u'dden turn and she

President Would Enlarge 
Supreme Court to 15 
* trifled congress with a surprise 
message proposing sweeping 
changes! in the federal court system 
which • would allow 
him to pack the Su- 
preme court with 
justices who could 
be expected to up- 
hold the constitu- 
tionality of New 
Deal legislation. 

He submitted a 
draft of a bill to .ac- 
complish this reor- 
ganization. It pro- 
vides: | 

1. That tfor every 
federal judge with a 
service record of at. least {ten years 
"continuously or otherwise" who 
fails to resign or retire within six 
months after reaching the age of 70 
the President shall appoint another 
judge. | ! ' j 

2. That the number of additional 
judges so appointed shall not exceed 
fifty, the Supreme Court being lim- 
ited to 15 members, appellate and 
special courts to |two additional 
members each and; district courts 
to twice the present number of 
judges. | , 

3. That two-thirds of the Supreme 
Court and three-fifths of other courts 
shall constitute a quorum. 

4. That the chief; justice of the 
Supreme Court shall |transfer circuit 
and district judges to jurisdictions 
with congested dockets in order to 
speed up disposition! of litigation. 

5. That the Supreme Court shall 
be empowered to appoint a proctor 
to supervise the conduct of business 
In the lower courts. | j 

The President also proposed a re- 
form in the injunctive process which 
he declared would expeditelSupreme 
Court rulings on the constitutionality 
of legislation and would further in- 
sure "equality" andj "certainty" of 
federal justice. He said frequent in- 
junctions which set! aside; acts of 
congress^ are "in clear violation of 
the principle of equity that injunc- 
tions should be granted only in those 
rare cases of manifest illegality and 
irreparable damage; against which 
the ordinary course of the law offers 
no protection." . , • ' ; 

He asked that congress forbid any 
injunction or decision by any federal 
court touching a constitutional ques- 
tion without "previous and ample 
notice" to the atttorney general to 
give the 'government 1 an opportunity 
"to present evidence ; and bej heard." 
. His bill proposed that any lower 
court decision whichMnvolved a con- 
stitutional question be\appealed di- 
rectly to] the Supreme Court, where 
it would take immediate precedence 
over all other business. j\ 

New Deal leaders in congress 
were expected to back the Presi- 
■dent's proposals solidly, while it be- 
came apparent that the conservative 
Democrats might align with the 
solid Republican group in opposing 
it. The latter group saw in! the bill 
a direct attempt to get rid of some 
of the older justices of the Supreme 
Court who have proved continual 
stumbling blocks for pet New Deal 
acts. I 

Chief Justice Charles Evans 
Hughes, approaching 75, has voted 
sometimes to sustain, sometimes to 
Invalidate New Deal laws. Justice 
Willis Van Deventer, 78, has invari- 
ably opposed New Deal laws; so 
have James Clark McReynolds, 75; 
George Sutherland, 75, and Pierce 
Butler, 71 ; Louis Dembitz Brandeis, 
80, has voted to sustain New Deal 
acts, except in the case of the NRA, 
rejected by ananimous decision. 

If the President is successful in 
putting over the proposed changes 
it will be, the eighth time in the 148 
years of the Supreme Court's history 
that the number of justices has been 

Malaga Is Taken by ' { 
Spanish Fascists 

*■* fascist troops and warships, 
after several days of fierce battling, 
put to rout the loyalist defenders 
of Malaga and cap-

there may be a

ing rights. .| . | 

Vice President William S. Knud- 
sen and other officials of the cor- 
poration, issued a statement that 
they were ready to resume the con- 
ferences at his call. Governor Mur- 
phy had daily telephone conversa- 
tions with the White House and in- 
sisted he was still optimistic. 

In Flint there were preparations 
for "warfare" between the citizens 
and non-union men on one hand 
and the strikers| ori the] .other. The 
mayor was given dictatorial powers 
by the city commission with author- 
ity to organize a "special police" 
force of deputized citizens; and the 
National Guardsmen j under com- 
mand of Col. Joseph iLewis "was 
ready to maintain !the peace. The 
sheriff still refused to execute the 
court order for ousting! and arrest 
of the sit-down strikers until told 
to go ahead; by Governor Murphy. 
And the governor was ignoring that 
matter pending instructions from 
Washington. \ ' |

IpLiHU ROOT, one of America's 
■*-* most' eminent lawyers and 
statesmen, died, in New [York at the 
age of ninety-two. Intensively ac- 
tive all his life, he dicl not cease 
his activities until he was attacked 
by pneumonia two weeks before. his 
death. His passing was deplored by 
the great men of the nation and 
many of them would bt ve attended 
his funeral had the family not de- 
cided that | only private services 
should be held in Clinton, N. Y., his 
birthplace, j I 

By ; intellectual brilliancy Mr. Root 
became adniittedlythe leader of the 
American bar, and he was actively 
interested in many societies devot- 
ed to the arts and sciences, peace 
and education. During! a half cen- 
tury of public service he held many 
high offices,; and his greatest 
achievements were in furthering ar- 
bitration of ! international disputes. 
He was an ^organizer of the world 
court and served on th^ permanent 
court of arbitration at iThe Hague. 
He was secretary of war under Mc- 
Kinley, secretary of sWte under

Pope, in Better Health, 
Makes Radio Address 
p OPE PIUS is believed to be on 
1 the way to recovery from the ill- 
ness that it was feared would prove 
fatal. From his wheel chair in the! 
Vatican, he delivered by radio an 
address to the 500,000 pilgrims gath- 
ered in Manila for the eucharistic 
congress, urging increasing ardor in 
missionary work. His blessing was 
bestowed on the great throng at the 
closing of the congress. One of the 
pontiff's reasons for delivering this 
radio address, which of course was 
heard by all the world, was that a 
"congress of godless" was about to 
open in Moscow.

Congress Gets Plan for 
Public Works Program 
OECRETARY of the Interior Har- 
VJ old Ickes and the national re- 
sources committee of which he 
chairman have produced a' public 
works and national 
water program for 
the next six years, 
and it was submit- 
ted to congress by 
President' Roosevelt 
with the recommen- 
dation that it should 
be adopted. It in- 
volves the expendi- 
ture of five billion 
dollars and calls for 
lump sum annual 
[appropriations under 
the regular budget for a list of ap- 
proved projects, and allocation of 
the funds to a permanent public 
works or development agency. 

As the chief part of the plan, Mr. 
Roosevelt presented congress with 
a list of some $2,750,000,000 worth 
of water conservation projects, in- 
cluding a $116^000,000 flood-control 
program in the, inundated Ohio and 
Mississippi river valleys. 

In his transmisson message the 
President warned congress against 
considering each project as a sep- 
arate entity, jrhe report, he said, 
"should, of course, be read in con- 
junction withj the recommenda- 
tions for highways, bridges, dams, 
flood control, and so forth, already 
under construction, estimates for

"During the depression," he told 
congress, "we have substantially in- 
creased the facilities and developed 
the resources of our country for the 
common welfare through public 
works and work-relief programs. 

"We Have be'en compelled to un- 
dertake actual fvork somewhat hur- 
riedly in the emergency. 

"Now it is time to develop a long- 
range plan and] policy for 'construe- . 
tion— to provide the best use of bur 
resources and to prepare in advance 
against any othjer emergency." 

The committee that drew,' up this 
program ■ includes, besides Mr. 
Ickes, Secretary of War Harry H. 
Woodring, WPA Administrator Har- 
ry Hopkins, Secretary ofj Agricul- 
ture Henry A. Wallace, Secretary of

Deficiency Relief Bill I 

DESPITE the warm opposition of

ey of North Carolina and others, in- 
cluding the few Republicans, the 
senate passed jhe house, deficiency 
relief bill carrying an 'appropria- 
tion of $948,725,868. 

Senator Bailey spoke in support of 
his amendment jwhich would require 
a means test, or "pauper's oath," 
as some have called it,. for states, 
counties, and their political subdi- 
visions to ■ secure federal aid for 
their relief requirements. The 
amendment was rejected 

Out of the total allocated in the 
bill for "relief! and work relief," 
about $650,000,000 was expected to 
be given to the Works Progress Ad- 
ministration. From this fund aid 
will be given to victims of floods iq

Christians Fed to Lions 

to Make Roman Holiday 

During the declining days of the 
Somon empire, before Christianity 
' lecame the accepted religion, it was 
he custom of the Roman emperors 
o pacify their unruly subjects with 
ree circuses, which featured bouts 
between captive Christians armed 
'vith wooden swords and wild lions, 
jladiators also were matched 
against the lions. 

Christianity was just beginning to 
make itself felt, and such cruelty 
was the only means the pagan. Rom- 
ans could use in their fruitless ef- 
fort to stamp it out. Other forms 
of torture consisted of crucifixions 
and burning at the stake. As a re- 
sult the term "Roman holiday" lat- 
er has been applied to any enter- 
tainment which causes loss or suf- 
fering to those providing it. lit is 
taken from Byron's reference ' (in 
j'Childe Harold's Pilgrimage") to 
the gladiators as "butchered to 
make a Roman holiday." 

Unconscious Influence 
We are touching our fellow-beings - 
on all sides. They are affected for 
good or for evil by what we are, 
by what we say and do, 'even by 
what we think and feel. May flow- 
ers in the parlor breathe their fra- 
grance through the atmosphere. We 
are each of us as silently saturat- 
ing the atmosphere about us with 
the subtle aroma of our characters. 
In the family circle, beside and be- 
yond all the'teaching, the daily life 
of each parent and child mysteri- . 
dusly modifies the life of every per- 
son in the household. The same 
process on a wider scale is going 
on through the community. No man 
Uveth to himself, and no man dieth 
to himself. Others are built up 
and straightened by our unconscious 
deeds; and others may be wrenched 
out of their places and thrown down 
by our unconscious Influence.

■If ore perhaps than 
ever before in our country's history, 
i . , I the courts ol the 
The President nation, federal 
and the Court and state, are in 
| a jam.. They are 
being subjected to a greater strain 
than ever before and, I think," the 
strain is too great for them long to 
continue to bear. it. 

That sentence sounds sensational. 
It is meant to Ibevjri the opinion of 
many sound [thinkers, men and 
women of vision, there has never 
been a time when a wave or surge 
has attacked trie courts or any other 
American institution with such fe- 
rocity. [ 

One of the reasons the situation is 
to be regarded with so much con-, 
cern is. President Roosevelt's latest 
request of congress for a reorgani- 
zation of the judiciary system. He 
is asking for j more judges every- 
where which, of itself, seems en- 
tirely proper,! but the message 
astounded observers by proposing 
an increase in the membership of 
the Supreme 'court of the United 
States to fifteen. That is to say 
i that if it were enacted into law, Mr. 
own proposal would 
j give him authority to select sue ad- 
' ditional justices-of the highest trib- 
unal. Ipasmuch as the : present 
membership of the court has re- 
fused a number of times to hold 
New Deal legislation valid under 
the Constitution, it takes no stretch 
of the imagination at all to figure 
out that Mr. jRoosevelt's proposal 
would give him authority to select a 
sufficient number of new i justices 
so that the New Deal would hold 
the balance of [power in the highest 
court of the judiciary of the coun- 
try. ' I " .! 

There may ! be and\ probably is 
merit in the [President's proposal 
that judges should- retire at seventy 
years of age. j It happens that' the 
present membership of the court in- 
cludes six men who are^ above that 
age and a statute compelling re- 
tirement at seventy would make six 
added vacancies in the court unless 
the present court should find that 
this law itself [is unconstitutional in 
one regard. |The judges are ap- 
pointed for life and jthey cannot be 
removed without cause — which 
means they must be impeached by 
congress and tried, j 

The message respecting reorgani- 
zation of the judiciary system was 
by far the most sensational to come 
from Mr. Roosevelt as President. 

He pointed, out in it that he had 

proposed reorganization of the ex- 
ecutive branch of the government so 
that it might function more effi- 
ciently. The j next I step, he said, 
was to reorganize the judiciary so 
that it could administer justice 
more speedily] But [there are. many 
minds throughout the country which 
find it difficult to believe that the 
necessity for speedy justice is the 
fundamental reason for the new pro- 
posal. | v 

It is too early to tell, of course, 
how congress [will act on the Presi- 
dent's suggestion, but the more as- 
tute observers here are quite con- 
vinced that such legislation cannot 
go through without a bitter debate. 
The political implications are many. 
If a real struggle develops in the 
house or the senate, it is not out- 
side the range of a good guess to 
predict that it could split the tre- 
mendous Democratic majority 
asunder in either house. If it did 
that once, undoubtedly enmities and 
factions would be created that 
would continue through the remain- 
der of the President's new term and 
only the passage of time can dis- 
close how far .reaching such a thing 
might be. [ 

But let us review for a moment 
some of the background of the con- 
ditions that have preceded the Pres- 
ident's sensational proposal. There 
havesbeen sniping and bushwhack- 
ing ar-ttie judiciary for a number of 
years and this wasthrown into high 
speedy by\ the President himself 
when the Supreme [court threw out 
the NRA» X On that occasion, Mr. 
Roosevelt madV the well remem- 
bered remark^that^he decision had 
taken us backxto pvjhe horse and 
buggy days.'' \ 

There followed an uproar by 
vocal minority of radicals^and- per- 
sons who claimed to x be liberal. 
They attacked the ! Supreme court, 
for throwing; out New Deal N me! 
ures, ridiculed the justices as "thi 
nine old men" and proceeded in 
general to spread poison to all and 
sundry about the country's judicial 
system. On i top of that came Mr. 
Roosevelt's speech to congress last 
month in which he made a virtual 
demand upon the Supreme court for 
"a more enlightened interpretation 
of the Constitution]" That was : an 
unprecedented thing but it was not 
nearly so sensational as the present 
problem. j ' 

are doing this because they see the 
Supreme court deciding every now 
and then that some ill-thought-out 
piece of legislation should be tossed 
out of the window, j A good many of 
these congressional shouters have 
only a slight understanding of the 
babble that they :put out on the 
floors of thte house| and senate, but 
the fact remains they are a part of 
the congress and hence their words 
are received with 'some considera- 
tion among those who want to be- 
lieve the same way. 

On-the other hand, there are men 
like Senator Borah of Idaho, who 
foresee real trouble for all ^f us if 
the powers of the courts are c-urbed." 
Senator Borah thinks' the question 
of the freedom of the judiciary is a 
paramount issue [and lato':yj has 
made a powerful appeal that if the 
people want to make changes in 
their 'government, the; people ought 
to do it and not trie President and 
the congress. | 

The Idaho senator makes the point 
that only' through] a judiciary un- 
fettered by! politics, free to operate 
as it sees ithe lawj can the people 
of the country retain" their freedom. 



ON P. 

Gopher News Review 

Much of the problem that is swirl- 
ing around the courts of the land re- 
] sults»from the po- 
Congress sition which con- 
Criticize* gijess has chosen 
| .- to; take. There are 
a goodly number of representatives 
and senators who, [swayed by ithe 
vocal minority mentioned earlier, 
have voiced [bitter criticisms of the 
judiciary and ' have even proposed 
that its freedom be curbed. They 

If judicial independence goes, lib- 
erty goes. So, it seems to me that 
congress, which just! now is the 
spearhead of the movement to 
change the power of the courts, 
ought to recognize jits own responsi- 
bility. | j j' I .; ■ 
I said earlier that the courts 'could 
not continue long to bear the [pres- 
ent burden |of attack. -That burden 
which they [carry riow results large- 
ly — and this is' especially true of 
the Supreme court of the United 
States— from the fact that congress 
has ceased to, be a[ deliberative 
body. It has tossed great chunks 
of undigested ' legislation ai the 
courts and; when ithe' courts j have 
held these laws unconstitutional, a 
bunch of nitwits each itime has un- 
leashed a great howl. It would seem' 
then that the proper ^conclusion is 
that the nine old men !are not older 
nor any less enlightened than the 
members of congress or the execu- 
tive branches of jthe government 
but that especially congress is fail- 
ing to do its job. I It is attempting 
to read election : returns into the 
judiciary. It seems tome it [ought 
to be remembered by members of 
congress arid officials of the execu- 
tive branch; of the | government that 
each and every; one ;of them has 
taken an oath as an official of this 
government to preserve, protect and 
defend the j Constitution and ) in so 
doing they must defend the courts. 

In any discussion of congress and 
its activities, I find! time '±o do 
! a little laughing. 

Laughs Are 'Through the last 
Loud Today several weeks, a 
period whenj floods 
were raging and people were dying, 
when thousands | upon thousands 
walked the streets without' jobs, 
when other thousands - walked the 
streets because a militant labor 
leader had j called j a strike and had 
permitted his strikers to violate 
laws of the 1 land by seizure of prop- 
erty—while all of these things were 
happening, 'our congress was [giving 
thought to- a picayjine proposition. 
It was discussing a bill providing 
for alterations of .the :Capitol; build- 
ing, itself; j ! ■ ■ j 

The tragedy of' this particular 
thing is that it has a very good 
chance of ; being jenacted into law 
before the; end of this session. It 
is proposed to spend four or five 
million dollars to extend arid re- 
construct the central portionj of the 
Capitol along lines that would make 
the three j east wings extend the 
same distance from the main build- 
ing. It would enlarge the central 
portion arid proyide morej office 
space when, as far as any observ- 
ers can see, there is ample 1 space 
for all of the offices required now 
or for the [next half century.! 

I said the tragedy of the thing 
was that this proposal stands a fair 
chance of passing through congress. 

Sponsorsj of the plan declare it 
will improve the [appearance of the 
central portion' of the old building. 
It may do that :but I have 1 found 
more architects who- disagree than 
agree with! that thought. j 

As for trie office space argument, 
it would appear [that somebody in 
congress is quite determined] simply 
to spend some more moneyl It is 
to be remembered that only two 
^g^ears ago, thei house of repre- 
sentatives | built, | a second office 
building at a cost of $9,000,000 for 
its members.- Abjout the same time, 
the senate added a wing ' to the 
senate office building so that each 
senator could have three rooms 
whereas heretofore the average sen- 
ator had [only two rooms j in- his 
suite; Committee chairmen 'always 
have had three or more rooms. In 
addition, there are several hundred 
offices in the Capitol building itself 
and a goodly number of senators 
and representatives have priirate of- 
fices in the Capitol as well as in 
the office buildings. So altogether, 
I think there is just ground for say- 
ing, as one hears said frequently, 
that the congresses of trie last few 
years much resemble iboys who 
have received top many toys in one 
delivery. They don't know what to 
do with themselves.; i

Requests from local and county 
governments and citizens groups 
for highway construction, . which 
the Highway department lacks 
funds to perform, total more than 
$45,000,000, but roads cost money 
and the 1 public can only enjoy the 
benefits; of what it is willing to 
pay for] ' 

At the same time the average 
urban motorist, especially in the 
larger ; cities and towns, ; pays 
more each year for garage rent 
and* parking lot space, in other 
words pays more for a few square 
feet of j cindered ground on which 
to let his car stand still, than he 
pays to construct, maintain and 
police 11,000 miles of state high- 
way over which to drive. 

These were two of the, -major 
points made by N. W. Elsberg, 
state- highway commissioner, in 
an address before the state con- 
vention of the Minnesota associa- 
tion of County Commissioners in 
St. Paul. / /, 

Commissioner Elsberg charged/ 
that a deliberate campaign of mis- 
representation of highway fstcts 
has been /under way for /some 
time.- He also discussed with the 
county / commissioners, xvho, he 
said, /would understand/the' high- 
way/ problems better /than • any 
other, class of people, several in- 
stances which he/Said were not 
misrepresentation/ but mis-state- 
ments of fact (/ jnade in perfectly 
good faith because of mis-under- 
standing. / ' 

He urged the county commis- 
sioners: to/take advantage of any 
assistance the state, department ' 
able to/ give them, at any 
and expressed the hope that 
ty .boards and the state couljl 

Jrlc in closer cooperation toward 
; solution - of a common/ prob- 
i, hpw to build the most good 
ids with the least expense to 
the : taxpayers. ■ 

Every county in the^tate, Com- 
missioner Elsberg saia, is seeking 
highway construction. These re- 
quests! he said, are mostly meri- 
torious, but the state simply has 
not the funds to' carry them out. 
They include : ;■ -'■-• 

Requests fori grading and, gravel 
surfacing of about 1,000 miles to 
cost ?12 ; 500,000. 

Bituminous surfacing for 400 
miles.jat $2,000,000. 

Paving for 500 miles, to cost 

Bridges and 'grade crossing pro- 
jects , totaling $10,000,000. 

General betterment projects to- 
taling $3,000,000.

Livestock During 1936 


Un(i ismayed ! by one- of the most 
severe blizzards of the -winter, 
1000 farmers and livestock pro- 
ducers of the five Northwest 
states trekked. into St. Paul early 
last week to attend the 16th an- 
nual convention of the Central 
Co-operative Association stock- 
holder^ on February 9 and 10. 

In his report on the 1936 busi- 
ness of the. Central Co-operative 
Association, Ni K. Carnes, general 
manager, pointed out that the 
Central handled 18,810 carloads of • 
livestc ck during the year, an in- 
crease of nearly ' 6,000 cars or 46 
per cint Over; the previous year. 
This total was 25 per cent of 
South St. Paul receipts, of which 
practically 70 per cent arrived by 
truck and 30 per cent by rail. 

"It is interesting to note," said 
Mr. Carnes, "that with only $36,- 
775 worth of stock issued and out- 
standing at this time, the Central 
handled a business of $26,202,- 
837.22 r The board of directors of 
the Central declared a 25 per cent 
patronage j refund based on com- 
missions collected. This refund is 
equivs lent! to J 8107,859.96: This 
makes "a total of $1,606,803.10 re- 
- fundec to [ patrons since the org- 
anizat on started- 15 years ago." 

Wir ; — Tjvo j small" boys, who 
trudged barefoot through half a 
mile of snow fo carry their young- 
est sister j and a baby to safety, 
have been) acclaimed heroes. The 
boys, |7 and 9-year old .sons of 
Mrs. Verne Anker, carried th§ 
younger children to the protection 
of a (neighbor's home after fire 
had destroyed the dwelling in 
which I they lived with their blind 
mother. The boys were unable to 
save any of their clothing, but did 
manage to save blankets in which 
they jwrapped the younger chil- 
dren for the trip through the bit- 
ter cold. i ,

Scholin, Victor and Arthur 

partment has had to spend $615,- 
000 battling snow on trunk roads 
the first four n.onths of the winter, 
October, November, December and 
January, according to an an- 
nouncement by N. W. Elsberg, 
state commissibner of highways. 
This sum is equivalent to the cost 
of bituminous I surfacing approxi- 
mately 341 miles of trunk highway. 
With Northwestern, Western 
and Southwestern Minnesota hard- 
est hit, Virginia .having a record of 
84 inches (sevsn feet) of snow, the 
department hks kept the main 
highways open for all but a few 
hours and secondary roads have 
not been tied up more than two 
days in any ii stance, Mr. Elsberg 
said. The. state!, due to the heavy 
snow, has been forced to go to the 
assistance of \ several, cfiunties, ex- 
tending the w,drk of the regular 
highway crew^. 

Stretching across the state is 
approximately 6,000,000 feet of 
snow fence, the erecting, mainten- 
ance and removal of which will 
cost approximately $225,000. While 
the snow has fieea heavier this 
year, fortunately there hasn't been 
as much wind as last season, when 
$800,000 was spent in snow re- 
moval in a single month, February, 
and approximately $1,500,000 was 
needed for sn'ow removal for the 
year, a part ofj the $8,000,000 main- 
tenance expense. o . 

Snow removal expense so far in 
1936-1937 is running about the 
same as in 193^5-1936,. Mr.. Elsberg 
said, but highway crews have been 
able to do a Better job in keeping 
the highways open, due to lower 
drifts. In numerous cases highway 
plows have preceded doctors and 
ambulances in their work of mercy 
in the rural districts; County high- 
ways have been opened up when 
county equipment, heavily overtax- 
ed, was unable) to do 'the jobl and 
state equipme it was \available. 

Requests from local! governmen- 
tal units for such-state department 
tal assistance, made possible on a 
contract basis by the l'035 legisla- 
ture, have been far greater this 
year than eveij before. -\ "; 

Particularly bad spots this year 
have been near Marshall, Pipe ;

Clark, Wheeler Attack 
President's Court Plan 

THOUGH 'President Roosevelt 
persisted in his intention to force 
through congress his measure to 
"reform" the federal judiciary, 
I law-makers who 
have been his warm 
supporters are com- 
ing out one by one 
in hot opposition to 
his plan to pack the 
Supreme [court. 
Among them are 
Senator Bennett C. 
Clark of Missouri 
and Senator Burton 
K. Wheeler of Mon- 

Senator Clark 




tana, both 
studied the 
carefully before issuing their state- 
ments. The announcements 'of these 
men was scarcely offset by| a radio 
address by Attorney General Homer 
S. Cummings, dutifully defending 
the President's plan. | ' 

Senator Clark said he was entire- 
ly in accord with the minor ' pro- 
posals in Mr. Roosevelt's scheme, 
but was totally unable to agree with 
the provisions for packing (the Su- 
preme court. He continued* VThe 
conclusion is unescapable that to 
increase the court at one ime by 
the increase of an additional two- 
thirds of its present menbership 
is to pack the court with reference 
to a particular situation and par- 
'ticular litigation now pending or 
to be immediately pending before 
it. . | 

"To seems a radical and 
unnecessary change in our whole 
system of' government, without the 
submission to the people | in the 
proper form of an amendment to 
the Constitution. Therefore I shall 
vote against that portion of the Pres- 
ident's proposals," | 

Then came Senator Wheeler, stal- 
wart radical, with a statement 
which it was reported he made pub- 
lic over the protests of the White 
House. He said in part: I 

"I am, always have been, and 
will continue to be opposed to the 
usurpation of legislative functions 
by the courts; I am, have been, and 
will be opposed to usurpation of leg- 
islative and judicial functions by the 
executive branch of the .govern- 
ment. ' J 

"The issue is: How are we going 
to prevent .in the future this usurp- 
ation of the legislative power by 
the courts? Shall we attempt to 
coerce them by packing the court 
with six new! men?' If we! do add 
six new men to the court does it 
correct the evil? Or is it merely a 
temporary expedient? | 

"Every labor leader, every farm- 
er, and every progressive-minded 
citizen in the! United States would 
have been shocked and protested 
from the house tops if President 
Harding, President Coolidge, or 
President Hoover had even inti- 
mated that they wanted to increase 
the Supreme court so as to make 
it subservient to their wishes. 

"If this administration j can in- 
crease the Supreme court to make 
it subservient to its wishes, an- 
other Harding administration can do 
the same thing, 

"There is nothing democratic, 
progressive, or fundamentally 
sound in the proposal advanced by 
, Attorney General Cummings ad- 
vanced these two reasons. for sup- 
porting the Presi- 
dent's proposal: 

New blood' should 
be injected into .the 
judiciary in order 
that the Constitution 
shall be construed 
in keeping with the 
changing needs pro- 
duced by new com- 
plexities of national 

The congestion of . 

dockets in the feder- A W- Gen. 
al courts is largely Cummings 
due to the inability of aged and 
infirm judges to' perform their share 
of the work. 

Investigation has shown, however, 
that the second reason is unsound. 

Commenting on Mr. Cummings* 
speech, Senator Glass of Virginia 
said: "I think it indicates that the 
country is in infinitely greater need 
of an attorney general than of addi- 
tional judges on the Supreme court 
or of judicial wet nurses for six of 
the present members of the court." 

Senator Minton of Indiana der 
fended the plan in a radio address 
but probably did it more harm than 
good, for he frankly Admitted the 
purpose of the administration is to 
change the. personnel and views of 
the Supreme court, in| order that 
President Roosevelt's New Deal 
program will be held constitutional:

tion, the world expenditure on arms 
and armies hi preparation for war 
has more than doubled in the last 
two years, reaching a record height 
of $11,TJOO,000,000- in 1936 alone. The 


cost of armaments in 1934 was $5,- | 

Russia in bothj years is ac- 
with the lead in the spend- 
ing for military purposes, its mili- 
tary budget for 1936 reaching al- 
' " ,000,^)00,000. But the great- 
est increase in the course of the 
two years was recorded by Ger- 
many whose tremendous rearm- 
ament program has raised the Ger- 
man military budget to: seven times 
its 1934 level. It is estimated as 
spending $2,600,000,000 in 1936. 

In Germany, Japan and Italy the 
proportion of the national income 
going to unproductive military pur- 
poses has Reached "alarming fig- 
ures" and imany other countries 
have! "strained' their financial re- 
sources," the report declares.

General Motors Strike Is 
Settled by Compromise 
D OTH sides making concessions, 
*" the General Motors strike came 
to an end in what Governor Murphy, 
of Michigan called " an enduring 
peace." Operations 
of the great corpo- 
ration had been par- 
alyzed for 43 days, 
and the losses to it 
in business and to 
workers in wages 
have been immense. 
Partly through the 
skillful efforts of 
James F. Dewey, 
veteran federal la- 
bor conciliator, John 
L. Lewis, head of 
the C. I. O., and other union leaders, 
and the officials of General Motors 
were persuaded to modify the defi- 
ant stands they had maintained 
through eight days of negotiations 
in Detroit, and the governor was 
enabled to announceXhe settlement. 
Under the terms of the agree- 
ment: | 

1— The corporation recognized the 
union as the [collective bargaining 
agency for those employees belong- 
ing to the union. 

2— The corporation and the union 
agreed to commence collective 
bargaining negotiations on Febru- 
ary 16. | 

3 — The union agreed to end the 
strike and evacuate all plants occu- 
pied by strikers. 

4 — The corporation promised t o 
resume operations in all strike- 
bound or idle plants "as rapidly as 
possible." | 

5 — All emplyees are to return to 
Work without discrimination against 
strikers. | 

6— The union agreed that pending 
negotiations tliere' will be no other 
strikes or interference with produc- 
tion. | 

7 — During existence of the collec- 
tive bargaining agreement contem- 
plated, all opportunities to negotiate 
shall be exhausted before any other 
strike or production interference is 
attempted by the union. 

8 — After evacuation of plants the 
corporation agreed to dismiss the 
injunction proceedings started by 
the corporation against the union or

Wallace's Solution of 
the Farm Problem 
COLUTION of the farm problem, 
^ as devised by agricultural lead- 
ers who have been in conference 
with Secretary Wallace, is based on 
Mr. Wallace's ever-normal granary 
plan. It wou:d operate on these 
four stages: 

1. Soil conservation payments 
would be continued until production 
balances dermnd. 

2. When a surplus in any com- 
modity is grown, the government 
would offer farmers loans at mar- 
ket prices for storage. of the com- 
modity in binii. 

3. If the surplus continued, soil 
benefit payments for removal of 
acreage from cultivation would be 

4. Should surpluses increase to 10 
or 15 per cent^ above demand the 
government w )uld impose taxes on 
excess produc ion to force acreage 

Officials said no definite plan of 
taxation has been worked out. 

Navy Cannot Get Bids 
f^t Steel It In eeds 

DOMESTIC manufacturers per- 
sistently refuse to offer bids on 
the steel that the navy needs for its 
warship building program. Pres- 
ident Roosevelt wants to know why 
this is, and so far he has found 
out that the y/alsh-Healy govern- 
ment contract law is to blame. That' 
act requires that all manufacturers 
filling government orders in excess 
of $10,000 shall comply with/mini- 
mum wage .and maximum hour 
standards. / 

Since the act became effective 
last year, the navy has advertised 
for bids on 25,000,000ypounds of steel 
but has been able/to place orders 
for only 7,000,Q00/pounds. 

Spokesmen for the Navy depart- 
ment indicated no further bids 
would be >tsked until the industry 
has recorded its position or unless 
the Labor department moves to re- 
lax the labor i standard provisions 
of the law.

Washingion.fjlt la I undoubtedly 
one ; of the fundamental foundation 
stones/of demo- 
cratic government 
thatj where a civic' 
right or privilege 
is accorded,'''the persons who are 
rights necessarily 
have some duty to perform under 
those rights. It is well established, 
for example, that workers may or- 
ganize into ] unions; I that those 
unions have the right to bargain 
collectively . which means that a 
committee representing the mem- 
bers of that:Union may speak for it 
in dealing withj the employers, and 
it is a right undoubtedly of unions 
to call its members away from work- 
on strike. I think there can be^no 

.debate concerning these ^three 
premises. But; since these rights 
have been granted to workers and 
accepted by them on the same in- 
alienable basis !as the right to vote, 
the obligation^ j that go with these 
rights necessarily have been accept- 
ed by tbe workers. | 
We have just seen | a settlement 

' of one of thej great strikes of this 
decade and the returnjof.more than 
one hundred thousand workers to 
the plants of Xhe General Motors 
corporation. 1 J' j Immediately after 
Governor Murphy of Michigan,' had 
announced that General Motors and 
John L. Lewis and his Committee 
for Industrial; Organization had 
reached . an ] agreement, efforts 

. surged and swelled in a movement 
on the part of each side to • claim 
victory in the j settlement. From all 
sources I have been able to tap, 
from every trustworthy observer of 
national affairs, I have obtained vir- 
tually the same story about the Gen- 
eral Motors'-^C. I. O. strike settle- 
ment. As jfar, as I can see after 
digesting all of the opinions within 
my reach, j it \ seems to me that 
neither General Motors nor John L. 
Lewis won. | What is much more im- 
portant is thatjthe American people 

' lost by that, strike and they are in 
a fair Way I to j lose, much moire. 

The General Motors strike was 
one of the cpstliest in history. I am 
told that the j workers alone' lost 
something like one hundred million 
dollars in wages; and, of course, 
the stockholders of General Motors 
likewise lost! ] because during all 
those days, | forty-four of them, that 
the plants were closed, no new cars 
moved into jtrade.j That means that 

: all the thousands of dealers and 
salesmen of JGeneral Motors auto- 
mobiles earned rio income. 

The truth about the settlement 

seems to be that each side was will- 

t «i. it I I. m S near the end 

. ~ Tuth Ab .»ft to accept Gover- 

Settlemenl nor Murphy s 
! |.| proposition for 
settlement |as| a face saving pro- 
posal. It is | undoubtedly, true that 
John L. Lewis would have been 
sunk without] a trace and' his move- 
ment to break up the American 
Federation|of|Labor and take con-' 
trol of labqr for himself would have 
been utterly j ruined had there not 
been somejconcessions by the Gen- 
eral Motors officials. He apparently 
attempted to] break up the A. F. of 
L. before he j had sufficient union 
men weaned ] away from the parent 
organization and that is the reason 
why his position in the General 
"Motors strike was so precarious 
from his personal standpoint. 

On the other hand, it is quite evi- 
dent as welljthat General Motors 
was forced into a position where it 
had to make concessions or be 
charged, by the federal' government 
with responsibility for bloodshed 
and destruction of property in 
riots. Governor] Murphy acted 
throughout: the strike negotiations 
under the flag of! President Roose- 
velt, saying] his j movements were 
at ]the wish ojf the President. Gen- 
eral Motors | did not dare attempt 
to :run counter to the President's 
.commands! [because it could not' 
withstand | public sentiment - that 
could and probably would be built 
.upi against j it j should it be publicly 
criticized by|the President. 

And to support my statement that 
the] settlerfierit is a face saving" 
agreement] and that neither side 
won in it, j it is necessary only to 
consider that this agreement will 
run just six months. It contains 
no [ elements of j permanency nor 
does it show any signs of a basic 
understanding which will swing pub- 
lic sentiment to the Lewis faction. 

tors again will be the goat and thi 
public will pay. | 

I have been wondering whether 
many people recognize howj they 
are going to pay for the cost of 
this strike. I have mentioned ^ways 
in which they have lost by it and 
it seems equally clear ; that jwhen 
the Lewis unions get through with 
the use of force, it is likely to [bring 
about an increase in the cost of the 
automobiles they produce. It is like- 
ly to go further than just automo- 
biles. There isa move on now to 
attempt something of the same sort 
of labor^attack on the steel manu- 
facturers. If that materializes, it 
is/easy to see how widespread the 
increased costs will be and how 
consumers will pay in the end. 

This may seem to- be an iargu- 
ment against increased wage's. It 
may seem to be a defense of steel 
boots that used to be worn by in- 
dustrialists and with which, they 
trod upon defenseless labor. But' it 
resolves itself into a question of 
justice and a consideration of the 
problem as it concerns' consumers 
as well as workers.^<li there is 
anything in the theory that ; labor 
is entitled to . a'fair wage, there 
must be likewise some merit in the 
contention that the public which 
consumes the product' of labor is 
entitled to an equal amount of con-

Federal of business 

Charters pecially big 

ness. Corporations 
were held up as something [to be 
despised, especially if they j were 
large corporations. Lately there has 
been quite a definite movement for 
legislation in congress that would 
force corporations to have federal 
charters; that is, charters issued 
by the government at Washington 
which, therefore, could control such 
corporations with whatever regula- 
tions' were deemed necessary. 1 This 
legislation, it is true, has not ap- 
proached the stage where a pre- 
diction of its passage can be made. 
The point is, however, that it rep- 
resents the thoughts of a certain 
percentage of the people. The ques- 
tion of legality of such a statute 
obviously remains to be determined 
but it is to be noted that this prop- 
osition is s,imply another step, in the 
movement to cast a stigma upon 
business, a move to make business 
appear immoral or criminal or gen- 
erally infamous. 

Business has found it advan- 
tageous to incorporate. It removes 
certain responsibilities from the in- 
dividual's joining in a corporation, 
and adds certain commitments at 
the same time. Here again are the 
rights and counter obligations aris- 
ing with those rights and I think no 
one can dispute the fact that our 
nation has moved forward I more 
rapidly because of the use :of the 
corporation as a business entity. 

But I have been unable to find 
an answer to the question why the 
federal government should' take 
control by law of business corpora- 
tions without at the same time tak- 
ing control of labor organizations. 
Now, it is to be noted that labor 
unions have steadfastly avoided 
taking the step of incorporation. It 
is not true abroad where many la- 
bor organizations hold corporate 
charters just as would a business 
enterprise. I 

The fact that labor unions have 
not incorporated leads one to the 
presumption that the unions have 
felt such a step would hamper their 
activities. And, indeed, it might. 
For example, there have been 
scores ' of instances where labor 
unions, through their authorized offi- 
cials or bargaining committees, 
have signed wage contracts with 
their employers— only to ditch that 
contract subsequently without re- 
gard for its binding force. 

As labor unions are now or- 
ganized, they are very loosely knit 
associations and there is nothing by 
which the individual members are 
bound except their own will to per- 
form. In the case of a business 
corporation, for example, the stock- 
holders have invested money and 
obviously when the corporation is 
sued in court or accumulates any 
kind of liability the stockholder's' 
money in the corporation is avail- 
able to pay whatever obligations 
develop. Hence, the lack of a cor- 
porate organization on the part of 
a union removes all responsibility 
insofar as law is concerned from 
the unit into which.the workers have 
organized themselves. 

The point is, after all that the 
General Motors strike has demon- 
strated beyond the peradventure of 
a doubt that the national labor pol- 
icies arejitterly ineffectual and con- 
tain no consideration for the con- 
suming public. Labor, as represent- 
ed by the John L. Lewis faction, 
has shown its willingness to back its 
demands with force in disregard of 
law has failed to answer the 
responsibilities which it seems to 
me accomplish the\ights anil priv- 
ileges the nation accords it.

ings on American j frontiers, 
South America, Africa, ialong

A strange man, thisj Finger, a 
modern Marco Polo, : born in Eng- 
land in the latter '60s who con- 
trived wriile yet in his 'teens to 
wander from his native land and 
go adventuring j with no thought 
save to see arid hear and know 
things that lure restless souls to 
the frontiers of Jother countries, to 
the wild coasts of distant countries. 
Educated for a career in music, 
steeped ]in the world's operas, 
tained for the ! concert stage, he 
answered! only the call |of the open 
road and i went wandering. At the, 
peak of [his young manhood he 
turned up in St. ILouis, took up rail- 
road construction, accepted the 
rnjanagenient of a group of lines 
penetrating the new country, mar- 
ried and prepared to settle down .to 
a stationary life among directors, 
stockholders and business builders, 
but still clinging to his music for 
after-hour recreation. | : . 

In the midst of this new en-, 
vironment, which was never to his 
liking, Charles j Finger, his head 
filled with romantic reflections 
born of his youth, turned to writ- 
ing the stories lie had lived in days 
gone by.] William Maroon Reedy, 
then at the zenith of his fame as 
editor of I the St. Louis Mirror, be- 
:gan to buy manuscripts of the rail- 
roader, jit was not long after 
Finger turned his attention to. the 
written jword' that Reedy sought 
out his occasional contributor and 
made him a regular feature of the 
Mirror's ] index.] So thoroughly at 
home was Finger in the literary 
pool under Reedy's direction that 
he became associate editor of the 
weekly and as] well the confidant 
of its founder. ] 

Death of the Mirror. 

Into the discard, gradually, to be 
sure, but in the end completely 
overboard, went the railroading 
ambitions of the man who from 
childhood had |been exploring for 
his ideal. The final dramatic de- 
cision was br]ought about when 
Reedy, upon deciding to take a 
vacation^ put Finger in charge of 
the Mirror with absolute editorial 
authority during this absence. 

From [that vacation Billy Reedy 
never returned. 1 Death had over- 
taken, him on his brief fur- 
lough from the desk where for 
many years he radiated' with bril- 
liance. | Without Reedy, there! 
could be no permanent Mirror.; 
Finger, quite aware of the relation 
that the founder, bore to the paper, 
assisted in the termination of the 
publication, closed its eyes, as it 
•were, and joined theimourners.j 
legion wherever men of brains' 
gathered. ' . j 

Inoculated with the; impulse to 
carry oh with j naught : but the pen 
for his [guerdon, Finger: withdrew 
from his railroad and commercial 
connections, gathered up his wife 
and five children, moved bag and 
baggage to Fayetteville, Arkansas, 1 
and settled down, for good. He put. 
his three sons! and two daughters, 
through | the University of Arkan-i 
sas, meanwhile slowly accumulat- 
ing a. few hundred acres of farm- 
land. He built houses and barns 
to conform with his views of what' 
a homestead ] should contain of; 
creature comforts. \ 

Squire Is Hospitable. i 

We four, Luana, Stephen, Gypsy,! 
a Scotty dog, | and the writer, all 
old friends of the Fayetteville sage, 
unannounced, but by the grace of 
God not unwelcome, I filed' across' 
the threshold of his Arkansas] 
home and sat in a semi-circle ( 
around j the joak logs glowing 
among ( the andirons that with his 
own hands Charles Finger long 
ago had] placed in the hearth. 

Not the least bit disturbed by 
the arrival of jinvaders, the Finger 
family opened their hearts, offer- 
ing a program that , would have 
kept us | at Gayeta for; a !fuil week.: 
"One day," said Stephen', |who is! 
the Lord Kitchener of Our Rum-j 
ble Home, "and we ; slee& under' 
our own roof, [ departing tomorrow : 
after br^akfas^." And so ■ it j was. 

Squire Finger, with true appre-; 
ciation [for . dramatic incident, es-; 
corted | Stephen and me ] into a] 
stone spring house where a fif-i 
teen-pound gobbler, his eyes closed 
in the last sleep, hung in the cool 
atmosphere essential to the {air con- 
ditioning of a I turkey I intended for 
the table. i". I ■ : ■ . i

By E. L. Tungseth 

On Monday evening, February 
15, the senate committee on taxes 
and- tax laws held a public hear- 
ing on the income tax bill. It 
was, indeed, a field day for the 
big industries of our state, ( \vhich 
gathered en masse for a well- 
planned and organized attack on 
income taxation. Representatives 
from cities throughout our com- 
monwealth spoke eloquently about 
the evils of additional taxation. 
All of them struck the "keynote" 
of despair, declaring that business 
in Minnesota could carry no addi- 
tional tax burdens, because busi- 
ness in this state is \ not making 
money. It was decidedly a one- 
way crowd and the senate ' cham- 
ber and galleries were well filled 
with sympathetic listeners, who 
applauded loud and long at every 
burst of eloquence against such 
taxation. The stage had. been 
-well set for them by the- chair- 
man, Senator F. J. Miller, ;of the 
senate tax committee. The! senior 
and wealthy Senator Orr was giv- 
en a. prominent place on the plat- 
form, where he could advantage- 
ously reveal his approval to the 
attacks that were made. The old 
philosophy, that business is the 
goose . that lays the golden egg, . 
was the accepted doctrine. The 
state employees and the farmers 
were all supposed to be dependent 
upon business for their prosperity, 
and would prosper only as busi- 
ness prospered. Yet every argu- 
ment was entirely beyond the 
point,- because if business in Min- 
" nesota does not earn money, it 
will pay no taxes under the in- 
come tax bill. 

There is no doubt but that busi- 
ness in Minnesota finds itself at 
times handicapped in competition 
because of its distance from avail- 
able markets. If that is the case, 
then business should get busy and 
remove some of these difficulties, 
such as high freight rates under 
the short and long" freight haul 
bill. No one dared openly at- 
tack the philosophy "pay. accord- 
ing to ability." That philosophy 
is too well established in the 
minds of our people as dntirely 
fair. No one would adirjit the 
real fact involved, that business is 
dependent upon the farming in- 
■ dustry and labor for its support. 
The great mass of common people 
on the farms; and in the' shops 
which, collectively, is the goose 
that lays the golden egg. 

No one would wish the indus- 
tries of Minnesota out of business. ' 
In order to remain in business, 
industry must make money, but 
when industry earns profits by 
virtue of ' privileges which our 
state provides, the people of the 
state have the right to share in 
such profits by means of | taxa- 
tion. Income tax is the only tax 
that business or individuals can- 
not directly pass on. I believe 
that when industry will j wash 
from its records watered | stock 
and reduce the wages of its of- 
ficials so that such wages! com- 
. pare with the wages of labor, 
that the books, in most cases, will 
show a neat profit. I 

At present we have the oleo- 
margarine bill, H. F. 78, on our 
General Orders. This bill passed 
the house by a very neat majority, 
but will likely meet withj very 
stiff opposition, if not defeat, in 
the hands of the reactionary sen- 
ate, leaders who think more in 
terms of profit for the packing 
industry than they think iri| terms 
of profit for the farmer. By the 
time this article is read this bill 
has met ' either with victory or 
defeat in the senate. . Senator 
Cravens is sponsoring the (meas- 
ure. Opposition comes from sen- 
ators like- Cashman, On*, Nelsen 
. and others. | ■ 

In my next! article I will dis- 
cuss my new rural credit oill.

below | the [national 
average. During 1936 a total , of 
649 persons jwere .killed on streets 
and highways in Minnesota. In 
1935 a total of 592 were killed and 
in 1934 the total reached 641. 

Because 'of a great incijease in 
driving and |the number ofj motor 
vehicles registered last year, Min- 
nesota's rate! 0I " fatalities :per ten

ed, which is the national method of

entire United States is 21.4. 

Defective yehicles j caused but a 
smalli percentage of [the traffic ac- 
cident fatalities. Defective brakes 
were j responsible for 1.7 [per cent

Bemidji — The Beltrami county 
sheriff, Andrew Johnson, I has re- 
ceived a pair of slave i leg-irons 
from a former Bemidji man, who 
served several months as federal 
judge in St. [ Thomas, Virgin Is- 
lands. The judge found the' irons in 
one of St. Thomas' ancient build- 
ings — one that 100 years! ago was 
a thriving ! slave market when 
blackamoors ( from Africa were sold 
to the plantation owners of the is- 
land. In those days St. Thomas was 
the cross-roads of the seas and 
most of the trade between the New 
World and the Old went through 
its port. One hundred years of* rust 
has nearly obliterated the hinges 
and the locks on the leg- rons, but 
on close examination it is possible 

•to see. where they once were. The 
irons weigh . about twe 

■ and are connected with 
length of chain.

snowdrifts, a group of local men 
. brought Donald Benson, who was 
stricken with pneumonia, fo Pil-

might be rushed to Brainerd for'

reached Pillager that Benson was 
ill and that help could not' reach 
him after giving up attempts to go 
to his home with a snow plow, two 
men left oh skiis in the evening 
for the Benson! farm. They return-'

message that the sick man! could 
be brought out only by toboggan.

You can cook an entire meal in an 
Electric Range without watching it. 
So exactly do you know what your 
range will do — what your results 
will be — that once you set your 
controls you can leave your range 
unwatched. Greater ease of cooking 
is only ONE of the many advantages 
of cooking electrically.

Windom— The biggest mortgage 

; ever to . be filed [ in Cottonwood 
county has just been received by 

, Geo. IE. Harper', register of deeds, 
and covers 365 [pages. It is Riven 
by the Northern; States Power 
company to the . Harris Trust and 
Savings Bank.! Trustee in the 
amount of 7i( ^million dollars. 
Since the company owns both real 
estate -and personal property, such 

■ as ,high lines [arid material, the 
mortgage mustfbe filed both as a 
real estate mortgage and a chattel 
mortgage. Registration tax in 
the state will amount to S120,0nn 
with; an estimated filing fee of 
$17. r iJ each, for 33 counties. It 
appears that ' the ; object of the 
loan is to borrow money at a 
lower interest rate by taking up 

. all outstanding! bonds which draw 
a. higher interest and putting 
theni into one loan at 3V:9f.

Pungency and " wateriness are 
two I accusations often leveled 
against the turnip. The latter may 
be overcome by careful draining, 
the former by the use of a little 
butter. This is a great softener of 
the turnip's flavor. The vegetable

Senate Committee Studies 
Supreme Court Scheme I 
V of Arizona gathered together 
the members of his judiciary com- 
mittee and began formal consider- 
ation of President 
Roosevelt's proposi- 
tion for federal Ju- 
diciary reform, in- 
cluding the packing 
of the Supreme 
court. It iwas under- 
stood the committee 
would arrange for 
public hearings at 
which ! opponents 
and proponents of 
the plan would be 
Sen. Ashurst privileged to speak 
their minds. Not long before, Mr. 
Ashurst and several other senators 
were called to the White House to 
discuss the strategy of the Sght the 
administration faces. The Arizona 
senator and Majority Leader Joe 
Robinson of Arkansas,! who was 
among the conferees, only recently 
were vociferous in declaring a con- 
stitutional amendment \vas the only 
proper way to accomplish the Pres- 
ident's purpose. But now they are 
obediently supporting the admini- 
istration measure. 

Senators Frazier of North Dakota, 
Bone of Washington and Nye of 
North Dakota also were j summoned 
to the White House, but what they 
heard there did not change their 
stand against the President's plan. 
Mr. Nye, indeed, soon ' after de- 
livered a radio address j against it. 
He did not especially 'defend the 
Supreme court, but said | he thought 
there are better ways of attaining 
the objective in conformity to the 
Constitution than the way of packing 
the court proposed by Mr. Roose- 
velt. He could not see "[wherein ah 
8-7 decision is' any more desirable 
than a 4-5 decision, which has' 
served to agitate us against the 
alleged course of permitting the Su- 
preme court to declare acts of con- 
gress unconstitutional. 

"However foreign to the Presi- 
dent the thought of v dictatorship 
may be, in connection with his pres- 
ent request it is good warning to 
look out — not for him necessarily, 
but for those who would in other 
days have opportunity to use the 
power which he would have us now 
extend." j 

Ex-President Herbert Hoover in 
an address before the Union League 
club of Chicago uttered solemn 
warning that the President's plan 
was a serious threat .against the 
ultimate safeguard of liberty, and 
condemned any such '[quick and 
revolutionary change in the Con- 

At this writing 32 senators have 
declared publicly against the bill; 
30 are on record for it, and 34 have 
not committed themselves. The ad- 
ministration leaders expected to 
pick up at least 12 from the non- 
committal group, and claimed 

Winant Quits as Head of 
Social Security Board 
JOHN G. WINANT, who as chair- 
J man. of the social security board 
had a lot of trouble with certain 
senators over patronage and whose 
reappointment to 
membership on the 
board had not been 
confirmed by the 
senate; sent his tes- 
i g n a t i o n to the 
President. Mr. Roos- 
evelt said Mr. Win- 
ant was retiring to 
attend to pressing 
private business and 
would be back in the 
federal service be- 
fore very long. The Arthur J. 
former governor of Altmeyer 
New Hampshire has been considered 
a logical candidate for the post of 
secretary of social welfare if that 
department is created by congress. 
Succeeding Mr. Winaht as chair- 
man, is Arthur J. Altmeyer, already 
a member of the board. To fill the 
vacancy in the membership the 
President nominated Murray W. 
Latimer of New York, who has been 
chairman of the railroad retirement 
board. i 

Sit-Down Strike Worries 
Governor of Illinois ! 
*-* nois and Martin Durkin, his 
state director, of labor, were making 
earnest efforts to .bring about a 
peaceful settlement of 'I a sit-down 
strike in the plants of the Fansteel 
Metallurgical corporation at North 
Chicago. Their probleml was much 
like that faced by Governor Murphy 
of Michigan in the General Motors 
strike. The sheriff of Lake county, 
armed with contempt citations, had 
tried to evict the strikers but he 
and his force of deputies were re- 
pulsed and it was reported he would 
not take the sole responsibility of 
clearing out the plants by force. 

The corporation had . refused to 
treat with outsiders who sought to 
represent the employees .who belong 
to a union allied with the C. Z. O. 
The heat had been turned off in the 
plants, but when the weather turned 

cold President Aitchlson of the com- 
pany ordered it turned on again, be-' 
lieving a majority of the men in the 
buildings |!were held there against 
their will.;! 

Governor Hoffman of New [Jersey 
is one executive who has taken a 
firm stand against the sit-down 
strike. He| announced that he would 
use | all the resources of the state 
to prevent such seizures of proper- 
ty. | The p. I. O. organizers de- 
nounced him as an enemy and "the 
strike-breakers' candidate for Pres- 
ident," arid went ahead with their 
unionization activities in the .steel, 
wire and hibber companies of New 
Jersey. Tteir field director said: 

'.'When C. I. O. workers decide 
to use sijdown strikes, they will 
use | them. We pay m>, attention to 
Goyerhor Hoffman. We know our 
legal rights." 

John L.t Lewis' threat, during the 
General Motors strike, that "Ford 
and Chrysler are next," is being 
carried out. The United Automobile 
Workers union sent to Walter P. 
Chrysler demands that the U. A. W.

President ji William

^Nanking pffers Peace to J 
Chinese Communists I 

/-\[fFERJNG to make peace with 
v -' the Chinese communists 
against whom it has waged war for 
ten ]years,j the National government 
at Nanking announced the terms on 
which those reds would be allowed 
participation in national affairs. The 
Kudmintang's demands are: Aboli- 
tion' of the icommunist army land its 
incorporation in the National gov- 
ernment forces; dissolution] of the 
Chinese communist state and its 
unification with the central govern- 
ment; cessation of red propaganda

and] stoppage of the class struggle 
which divides society info antagonis- 
tic [classes and invites ! mutual de-

•That the Nanking government is 
steadily growing stronger is made 
evident injlthe more conciliatory at- 
titude adopted lately by Japan. A

willing to[ abate its demands for

^PHAT Italy's conquest of Ethiopia 
x ] does not yet embrace all Ethio- 
pians was demonstrated when a 
shower of hand grenades wa^ hurled 
at Viceroy RodolfO'Grasdani in Ad- 
dis j Ababa | by natives. The yiceroy 
was only [slightly j injured but sev- 
eral in his | suite, including Air Gen. 
Aurelio Liotta and] the Abuna Cyril] 
Copjtic. bishop of Ethiopia, were se- 
verely wounded. [The attack took 
place just | before [the close ]of cel- 
ebrations [for the birth ]of a[ son to 
the [crown] prince of Italy. 

The assassins escaped in the con- 
fusion, but the army ' and police 
starred onl a relentless manhunt and 

soon had [more than 1,000 

under arrest. 


Blockade of Spain to. 
Insulate Civil War ■ '^ j 

CO FAR as the international nonJ 
^ intervention committee can-do 
it, the war in Spain is now insulated.' 
Representatives of; 26 European nal 
tions agreed that [no more volun- 
teers for either side in the civil 
conflict should be 'permitted to enJ 
ter the Iberian peninsula, effective 
at midnight February 20; and they 
laid plans for a complete blockade 
by land and sea that would prevent- 
the importation of any more men 
or war munitions.; Only Portugal 
dissented, objecting to establish? 
ment of frontier guards on her ter; 
ritory; Great Britain, France, Ger- 
many, Italy' and Russia ignored the 
Portuguese protests and went ahead] 
with the blockade plans, which are 
to be put into effect by March 6. • ' 

The decisions were reached after 
France delivered a virtual ultima- 
tum to her fellow committee merii; 
bers to end their" bickering and 
warned Italy she would not stand 
for "open invasion! of Spain." The 
French were quick to place guariis 
at all strategic points ' along the 
Franco-Spanish frontier. j ! 

The international naval patrols 
presumably will not have authority 
to stop vessels suspected of carry! 
ing arms and men to Spain, but 
will report ship movements to the 
committee for action and will place 
observers on the vessels to check] 
cargoes. j ' 

Supposing this blockade to be sue! 
cessful, it may well be that the 
Spanish civil war/ will die of inani- 
tion. Then may be brought about 
that which the international com- 
mittee seeks— international media- 
tion between the insurgents and the 
loyalist government. - 

For the present both sides are re. 
newing their efforts for decisive vie! 
tory. The fascists, still driving hard 
at the "life line" that connects Ma! 
drid and Valencia,; also are attack- 
ing the capital itself again. Their 
airplanes made two night bombing 
assaults on the city and its envi. 
rons, . killing a number of persons; 
and their artillery constantly shells 
the highways to Valencia. j 

The loyalist government, at its 
temporary seat in Valencia, took a 
new mandate of i absolute power 
from all Popular! Front parties 
and mobilized all, available man 
power to opposej the insurgent 
forces. All military classes of the 
last five years were drafted for imj 
mediate war service.

Britain's Navy Plan May 

Enlarge Our Program' 
1 BALDWIN'S . government of 
Great Britain is asking | for $7,500,- 
000,000 to finance its "w,ar plan in 
time of peace," and 
is meeting with de- 
termined opposition 
from the Liberals; 
Laborites and others 
in parliament. These 
especially object to 
the plan for enlarge-i 
ment of the nation's 
land, sea and air! 
forces by a $2,000,-' 
000,000 loan and in-: 
creased taxation, j 

Commenting o n[ 
the ■ British naval 
construction program, Admiral Wil- 
liam D. Leahy, chief of naval opera- 
tions of the American navy, served 
notice that any foreign nations ex- 
panding their navies beyond the 
standards of recent treaties might 
expect that the United States would 
match their construction; He said 
it was his understanding that this 
nation was definitely committed to 
the maintenance of a "navy second 
to none." To maintain that princi- 
ple, he declared, it[ would become 
necessary for the United States to 
build new ships if other powers did! 

The present United States build, 
ing program calls for start of con- 
struction this year on two new cap- 
ital ships. Great Britain already 
has laid the keels of two new craft 
arid the program announced in Lon- 
don calls for the start, after April 1; 
of construction of a 1 third new ves- 
sel. When Britain lays a third keel, 
then this government is likely to 
start similar construction.

National Topics Interpreted 

I by William 1 Bruckart 

Washington. — I suppose most 

members of congress will deny it, 

. , . but there certainly 

Political is every evidence 

Dynamite of 'an agreement, 
i - an: understanding, ; 

to let President Roosevelt's radical ; 
court reform legislation stew until 
the country is heard from. There is 
no doubt in my mind nor in the 
minds of other observers here that 
representatives and senators are 
anxiously awaiting word from their 
constituents because if any issue 
ever was loaded with political dyna- 
mite, the plan to pack the Supreme 
court of the United .States with six 
additional judges ; surely contains 
highly explosive elements. 

The facts I have mentioned in the 
above paragraph explain largely 
why there are so marly senators and 
house members who remain non- 
committal on the issue. They want 
to know which way to jump. Actu- 
ally, I believe as '■ many as half j of 
them are going to; try to determine 
Which band wagon they ought j to 
ride — whether they ought to |go 
against the President or for him. 
In other words, the spot _ they are 
now oh is not nearly so hot as the 
one upon which they may find them- 
selves if they guess wrong at this 
time. No politician will ever jump 
from the frying pan into the fire 
knowingly. j 

In the meantime, the debate 
rages. Out and out supporters j of 
President Roosevelt, the kind of men 
who follow him blindly because jhe 
is their leader, and the extreme op- 
position type who are against the 
President regardless of his position 
are battling for public attention. The 
radio is being used to an extent j as 
great, if not greater, than occurred 
in the last campaign. Those who 
are committed for or against the 
President's reform proposition are 
anxious to sustain their positions 
and the remainder of the national 
legislature is egging on the more 
bold members x in order that those 
who, have not m^de. up their minds 
can take advantage^ of word from 
back home. \ j 

In the meantime, asNwell, there 
are proposals and counterproposals 
seeking a compromise. -Few of" them 
have any definite .merit. Most! of 
them, I believe^ are purely and 
solely representative of floundering 
minds. Their sponsors entertain 
hopes that somehow, somewhere* 
they will gain a streak of light that 
will guide them through to a proper 
answer politically, j j 

There has been only one plan for 
giving ,the federal government more 
power that can possibly be de- 
scribed as sound. That is the origi- 
nal proposition by Senator Robinson 
of Arkansas, the Democratic leader 
of the senate, who announced early 
in the session of congress that he 
favored an amendment to the Con- 
stitution. While Senator Robinson 
did not then say so, nor has he said 
so since, the truth is that he and 
many others would like to see the 
people of the country have an op- 
portunity to pass upon any program 
that would change the country's ju- 
diciary. The President regards this 
method as too slow. ■ He thinks tnat 
any change's which he desires ought 
to be made at once and holds that 
the tremendous majority by which 
he was re-elected gives him author- 
ity to do so. Yet, as the picture 
now stands, there is every prospect 
of considerable delay and from the 
way I analyze the circumstances, 
delay will provide the vast majority 
of voters with an. opportunity for 
determination of the question which 
Is vital in this case: Does the coun- 
try want to keep- an independent 
system of courts or does it want Ito 
establish a precedent by which 
this administration of any other ad- 
ministration can influence those 
courts to do the bidding of the na- 
tion's Chief Executive? 
• • • 

Through mstoy years and in every 

year there has been constant criti- 

c i . cism of congress 

Safety »«. for delay to reaci> 

Speed, ing conclusions, jit 

is fortunate, in my. 

opiniori, that these delays constitute 

a part of our governmental system. 

They allow time for cooling off. 

I think it will be. generally agreed 
that every time legislation is rushed 
through congress ahead or as. part 
of an emotional wave among citi- 
zens, there has invariably resulted 
unworkable, if not entirely unsound, 
statutes. Such is bound to be the 
result when men and women fail to 
think things through— when they fail 
to examine all; of the phases of any 
problem. I 

President Roosevelt moved quick- 
ly, and I believe sincerely, in pro- 
posing the NRA and the farm relief 
plan under the agricultural adjust- 
ment administration. ; Yet,, neither 
of these reform measures stood the 
test of workability j neither had been 
drafted upon a proper knowledge of 
the ends they were to serve and 
neither did justice to all of the peo- 
ple. It was only natural, therefore, 
that they should fall by the way- 
side. | 

These two laws are cited because 
they are the outstanding examples 
of emotional legislation. There are 
many others, most of them not as 
bad. But lately one o3shoot of the 
NRA has arisen to plague the ad- 

ministration. I refer to the so-called 
Walsh-Healey law.; 

In order to refresh memories, let 
me explain that (the Walsh-Healey 
law prohibits the federal govern- 
ment from buying! products of mills 
or factories, or any fruit of labor, 
unless the supplying contractor has 
complied with trie] same minimum 
hours and. wages that were a part 
of the old NRA codes. Unless the 
contractor agrees] to produce the 
material which the federal . govern- 
ment is buying inj accordance with 
those terms, his' bid must be re- 
jected under the law. , j 

When the Walsh-Healey lawj was 
passed, there were] comments heard 
in several quarters that the 'time 
would come when| the "government 
itself would regret the legislation. 
That time has arrived. 

Everyone is aware, of course, that 
Great Britain has started on a naval 
building program [ under which it 
will expend approximately seven 
and a half billion dollars in the next 
five years. American policy always 
has called for matching the British 
navy ship by ship. Fifteen years 
ago when the Harding disarmament 
program was wr/tten into i treaty 
form, we destroyed ships so that our 
tonnage was the [same as that of 
Great Britain. Now, with the world 
in a turmoil, with ,Great Britain an- 
nouncing an unprecedented building 
program in order to protect its vast 
colonies and dominion from aggres- 
sion, the need arises for a building 
up of our navy | again. At least 
that is Mr. Roosevelt's view and he 
has wide support] for it. 

' ,1 * 

To build up the navy requires vast 

amounts of steel and other products 

„ tt. 'qf industry. Much 
Unable to <j f th e naval build . 

Get Steel |ing will be done in 
[the navy's , own 
yards. Thus, it has come to pass 
that the navy has been unable to 
obtain steel and other equipment 
since the manul acturers of the 
needed equipment are not willing to 
subject themselves to the terms of 
the Walsh-Healey law. In some in- 
stances where the navy has sought 
to buy materiall' the manufactur- 
ers have refused even to make an 
offer or state a price at which they 
would sell the required material and 
there is a very real possibility that 
unless the Walsh-Healey law is re- 
pealed or dodged] our navy build-i 
ing program may have to come to a! 
halt. : I 

The reason for ' this condition is 
that the Walsh-Healey law, with its 
prescription on minimum hours of 
labor and wages jwould place a bur- 
den on industry that it cannot bear 
and return its cost of production. 
The government] as a buyer, is a 
tough customer in any event. Its 
specifications are always more diffi- 
cult than is the practice in industry. 
Add to that, then, the requirement 
that men may work only 30 hours 
a week and that their pay shall not 
be reduced from the - rate of their 
compensation when they were work- 
ing 40 hours a week and you have 
burdened any manufacturing estab- 
lishment with a load that will break 
its back. . ! 

Right no^v, the Navy department 
is trying to find a way to get around 
the provisions of the Walsh-Healey 
law. President Roosevelt has said 
nothing publicly concerning his atti- 
tude but there are many who believe 
he himself feels the law is not work- 
ing out the|way it was intended. 

It is quite a distance, of course, 
from the Walsh-Healey law to the 
present controversy under Mr. 
Roosevelt's| plan to pack the Su- 
preme court with six new judges if 
one stops his examination of the 
two questions at' the surface. It is 
not difficult, however, to see a di- 
rect connection. The Walsh-Healey 
law was driven through congress in 
haste. The bad jeffects of it are 
coming now two years after its en- 
actment. If the Supreme court re- 
form proposal is driven through as 
quickly and with as little examina- 
tion as thei Walsb-Healeylaw, we 
will reap the reward sooner or later 
and probably for! many years to 
come. ■ I . .

of Mortgagee. 
for Assignee of Mortgagee, 


By E. L. Tungseth; 

In my letter of last week I 
promised for ' this letter a| brief 
review of my Rural Credit legisla- 
tion .which i may be referred | to as 
S. F. 820. i This bill is a liquida- 
tion act for the loans, mortgage^ 
and other! contracts held by the/ 
' Department of Rural Credit. It 
creates boards of appraisal and 
arbitrationj -for every county in 
which the state, through thg / oper- 
ation of its Rural Credit/Depart- 
ment, has any title to or interest 
in lands and it reduces the rate 
of interest on 'new and old loans 
to Z%. \ : / | 

These said boards are to consist 
of three members, one appointed 
by the Conservator, one by the 
County Commissioners and who 
must not he a bounty officer but 
a rural resident freeholder iof the 
respective j county, and the third 
member' to be appointed by said 
two appointees : and -who will be 
known as jthej "township member" 
selected, froml the 'supervisors of 
the township I in which he is to 
serve. I believe that such a board 
will be able to covejr the territory 
with expedition: and' arrive at a 
fair market v-alue of these Ifarms. 
The bill also provides fpr some 
protection i for the original i owner 
who has the | first opportunity to 
repurchase! these lands, if i he so 
chooses. The original owner will 
be the only '■ person qualified to 
enter into ' any sale contract with 
the state. 1 Any other purchaser 
must provide his own credit else- 
where. Under the provisions of 
the bill, lands which are, because 
' of location or nature, unsuited for 
agriculture will be withheld from 
sale and the 'disposal of such un r 
agricultural lands: will be -left to* 
the legislature. The bill provides 
for the appraisal (1) of j all of 
such lands, to: which the state has 
acquired title, (2) of lands on 
which mortgages ; or loans have 
become delinquent^ and (13) of 
farms on winch loans may be of 
good standing but which possibly 
should be re-appraised. [In the 
two latter instances, appraisal will 
not be made except on request by 
the owner! who pays a fee! of §1*5 
'for the appraisal; and who will 
then repurchase, if he desires,- on 
the appraisal value. 

Another important feature of 

the bill is the reduction 
rate of interest. ! This is 

in the 
set at 

37r, not only for the new loans 
but also for the old loans' which 
still are on the books of the' de- 
partment. : I! believe that the rate 
of interest is, of great importance 
in this legislation; and perhaps no 
other one factor will- be as bene- 
ficial to our farmers' as the inter- 
est rate on 'these' mortgages. It 
does not provide for any crop pay- 
ment plan^jbut'" places all mort- 
gage contracts, as well as rental 
contracts, on a : cash basis, the 
rental contracts to be based on 
'•'the state realizing 5% of the ap- 
praised value. This is only a brief 
summary of I the' contents of the 
bill, and I am certain that our 
constituents are all intensely inter- 
ested, not only those who are own- 
ers or tenants of Rural! Credit 
lands, but ! all other taxpayers and 
freeholders as well. j 

I believe that the state' is far 
better off | to accept its inevitable 
loss on these farms now,. [so that 
these farms. may be placed back 
on the tax list and those desirous 
of owning the . farms may have 
the opportunity to purchase the 
farm and a home for 'themselves. 

Fairmont. — ''Don't tell me a 
mere crowbar knocked out those 
. teeth I put in— 111 bet the snow 
, plow ran oyer you", said the den- 
tist to George Cavers, who ap- 
peared' with -two front teeth gone 
and two more badly chipped, as 
the result iof an encounter: with a, 
20-pound crowbar after working) 
on the local: caterpillar snowplow.) 
The accident occurred about four 
miles west of Ceylon when Cavers 
and Clyde TcSandburg stopped to 
fix a pulley on the hoist that ele- 
vates and ! lowers the wing. The ■ 
crowbar slipped from Sandburg's 
ha'nds. into the steel cable going 
through the pulley, which I flipped 
the bar endwise into George's 
face. Theiheavy steel rod knock- 
ed out his! only two "store teeth" 
and chipped off parts of the two 
on either side, to which the bridge 
had been anchored. I -

complexion. She makes it up as she 
goes along. i

Supreme Court Packing 
Controversy Increases 

WITH only four votes, in the 
negative, the senate passed 
the Sumijers house bill for voluntary 
retirement of Supreme court 
justices at the age 
of seventy on full 
pay. The four who 
opposed the meas- 
ure to the last were 
Bridges of . New 
Hampshire, Bulow 
of South Dakota, 
Johnson of Cal- 
ifornia and Moore of 
New Jersey. During 
the debate Senator 
Johnson declared 
that "a Supreme 
court justice who would retire at 
this particular time, by virtue of 
the bait pat was held out to him, 
would not be the sort of individual 
for whom I would have the greatest 

The retirement bill wns frvored 
by the President but, as Senator 
. Pat McCarren said, was not a part 
of Mr. EJoosevelt's bill for enlarge- 
ment of Ihe court. The .controversy 
over the||latter measure grew' more 
bitter day by day and to the sur- 
prise of|the administration, it was 
found that it was likely to be de- 
feated inj the house. Therefore the 
majority leaders decided to let the 
senate act first. In that body the 
decision rested with some twenty- 
five senators who had not yet an- 
nounced their position. . ' ! 

Mr. Rijosevelt stood firm, in his 
determination to force the bill 
through congress, and announced 
he would deliver a radio speech in 
its defense on March 9, the day 
before the one set for the start 
of senate) judiciary committee hear- 
ings on the bill. The President de- 
nied a report that he would make 
a tour 6: the country in behalf of 
his plan. 

', Senator George of Georgia, Dem- 
ocrat, stepped into the fight with 
an assertion matt the Supreme court 
enlargement proposal is a -repudia- 
tion- o'f \ he party's 1936 platform 
pledge tlat it would seek a clarify- 
ing! conS itutional amendment if. it 
could nol attain its social-economic 
welfare i rogram by legislation. 

In defense of the measure various 
members of the cabinet and heads 
■ of federal agencies began a speak- 
ing cam paign. 

Vidal Q jits as Head of 
Air Corrmerce Bureau 
V UGEIf E VIDAL has resigned as 
L ' director of the federal air com- 
merce bureau and says he will re- 
. enter pr yate aviation. His conduct 
of the tureau has been subjected 
to much criticism at times and a 
committ ie headed by Senator Cope 

land of 


New York has recom- 
the reorganization of the 

Recently the bureau and 

representatives of the air transport 
industry have differed sharply over 
causes (f the series of major air 

Vidal's successor is Prof. Fred D. 
Fagg of ] Northwestern university law 
school. He became associated with 
aviation during the war when he 
served zs a second lieutenant with 
- the nine y-second aero squadron in 
France. After the war' he returned 
to the United States and -specialized 
in air law. His assistant in the bu- 
reau will be Maj. R. W. Schroeder, 
also of Chicago. 

Hughes and Jean Batten 
Get Harmon Awards 
'"PHE International League of Avi- 
-*-|. ators announced in Paris that 
Howard |Hughes, the wealthy Amer- 
ican speed flier, and Miss Jean 
Batten of New Zealand had been 
awardeOj the Harmon trophies as 
the outstanding man and woman 
in aviation for 1936. Hughes' land- 
plane records in flights across the 
United States won the honor for 
him, and Miss Batten was rewarded 
for her/ spectacular solo flight 
across the south Atlantic. 

The league awarded the special 
Harmon hero medal to Jean Mer- 
moz, French airmail pilot who dis- 
appeared with his crew after mak- 
ing twenty-four crossings of the 
south Atlantic, carrying "mail to 
South America. 

Ernst] ! Lehmann, chief pilot of 
Germany's ocean-flying Zeppelins, 
was voted the world champion dir- 
igible pilot, and Ernst /D'emuyter, 


world champion for spher- 

ical aircraft 

Louise Thaden was voted the out- 
standing woman flier in the United 
States, jand it was announced that 
President Roosevelt would present 
trophies ' to her and Hughes. 

Farm Experts Approve 
AAA as Co-ordinator 
'T'HREE specialists in agricultural 
x economics have been studying 
the modified Agricultural Adjust- 
ment administration, as. it has op- 
erated in relation to such important 
products] as wheat, cotton, hogs and 
tobacco, and their report, published 
by; the Brookings institute, says it 
Is ; a desirable addition to the na- 
tion's economic institutions. 


The report concludes that a per- 
manent adjustment agency should 
prove useful as a eentral co-ordinat- 
ing body, or board of strategy, for 
an occupational group composed of 
small and loosely organized operat- 
ing units such as in agriculture. It 
recommends the continuance of the 
federal agency in order to assist 
farmers in adjusting their industry 
to changing technical and commer- 
cial conditions and to cushion the 
shock of disasters such as drouth 
and flood. 

As £or crop insurance, the belief 
is expressed that a system of all- 
risk insurance under government 
sponsorship would prove financially 
sound and beneficial to farmers if 
premiums and indemnities! could be 
kept on ; a true actuarial ibasis. It 
insists, however, that crop insur- 
ance should not be mixed up with 
the ever normal granary proposal. 

To the' whole ever normal granary 
idea in general the Brookings report 
is unfavorable. 

"Peace Before Colonies,' 
Eden Tells Eibbentrop 
♦* German ambassador to 1 London, 
had a heart-to-heart talk with For- 
eign Secretary Anthony Eden about 
Germany's jdesire to 
get back some of 
her lost colonies, and 
was told plainly that 
at present British 
public opinion was 
against such restor- 
ation. Moreover, 
Eden said, the ques- 
tion was not one for 
Britain and Ger- 
many to settle alone 
but could jonly be 
dealt with | by the 
League of Nations. 
According j to informed j sources, 
the foreign secretary then! went on 
to" declare that before Great Britain 
even could consider returning the 
reich's colonies or yielding League 
of Nations, mandates over former 
German! overseas possessions, the 
security! of Europe must be estab- 
lished by a general accord. 

Eden said the question of raw 
materials for Germany was one in 
which all the great powers who 
had control of principal raw ma- 
terials were interested. In! this con- 






he" said that while the 
should settle the' colonial 
he could envisage an al- 
method " of approach 
diplomatic channels. 

President Asks State I 
Soil Conservation Laws j ' 

TN IDENTICAL letters to the gov- 
1 ernors of! the 48 states Presi- 
dent Roosevelt called on jthe state 
legislatures to enact soil conserva- 
tion laws which would supplement 
the federal measures designed , to 
lessen the ravages of floods and dust 
storms.: ' | ' 

Along with his letter the President 
sent the . governors a copy of a 
model soil conservation | bill pre- 
pared by the Department of Agricul- 
ture. This provides for the (organiza- 
tion of soil conservation districts to 
carry on erosion control; projects 
with federal aid and regulations for 
use of land. j 

According to the plan I the sug- 
gested state laws would j have no 
bearing on federal soil conservation 
benefits,! but enactment of state 
laws would be necessary before a 
state could receive, any federal con- 
servation funds. I 

Panama Canal Tolls Rate' 
Revision Is 'Proposed 
A.BOLITION of the dual ^system 
• rx of measurement of vessels pass- 
.ing through the Panama canal was 
asked by the 1 President in a special 
message to cpngresSy-in accord with 
a report' of an advisory, committee. 
Nothing definite was said about rais- 
ing the revenue of the canal. 

The War department recently as- 
sailed the present dual system of 
collecting tolls as permitting in- 
equalities, manipulations, and end- 
less reductions in charges] resulting 
in' losses to the United States and 
unfair advantages , to shipping in-: 
terests. At present the canal, a 546% 
million dollar investment! is losing 
almost a million dollars a year. 

Manufacturers and other shippers 
of the Middle West have long main- 
tained that the Panama icanal toll 
charges are so low that the effect is 
to subsidize' shippers of the East and 
West because it is cheaper-to ship by 
water from either coast than by' rail 
from the Middle West. The middle 
westerners have urged j that the 
rates be raised to give them equal 
footing with seaboard competitors 
and also j to give promise of amortiz. 
ing the canal investment. 1 . 

Ex-Navy Officer Sentenced 
to Prison as a Spy ! 
J lieutenant commander in the 
United States navy; who had plead- 
ed guilty to charges of Iconspiring 
to sell naval secrets to Japan, was 
sentenced by Justice Proctor in the 
District Jof Columbia court to serve 
from four to twelve years in prison. 

Congress Gets Billion 
Dollar Housing-Bill ' 

of New |York and Representative 
Henry B. Steagall of Alabama intro- 
duced simultaneously in the senate 
and house the ad- 
ministration bill set- 
ting up a program 
for the construction 
of homes for ?'fami- 
lies of low income." 
Under the measure 
the government may

over such|.a ! period, not to exceed

T-I AVTNG virtually countenanced 

■'■•*■ jthe sit-down strike in the case 
of the Genera] Motors controversy, 
the admiriisrtration found itself em- 
barrassed j by that favorite ma- 
neuver ofj John Lewis' Committee 
for Industrial Organization. 

Out! in ifonica, Calif., about 200 
employees of the Douglas Air- 
craft 'corporation went on strike and 
"sat | down" in the big plant, com- 
pletely stopping work on $24,000,000 
worth of airplanes the company is 
building for the government. 

Finally the strikers were indicted 
for conspiring to violate two old 
California j laws against forcible en- 
try and trespassing, and when 300 
armed | deputies appeared at the 
plant,' they I surrendered and were 
taken' jo Los Angeles for arraign- 
ment! ill 

Another [ big government 'job was 
halted for ja time by a sit-down 
strike of employees of the Electric 
Boat; j comppny at .Groton, Conn., 
which is | building submarines for 
the navy. There, however, the local 
and | stater police soon evicted the 
trespassers and arrested them, and 
the rest i of the employees,, a large 
majority, resumed work. 

Sit-clowri strikers in the plant of 
the tjansteel Metallurgical ;corpora- 
tion [at Nor h Chicago, 111.,: who de- 
fied ! jcourt eviction " orders, were 
routed by) a force of deputies and 
police armed with tear gas guns, and 
were jarrest :d for contempt of court. 
Also) [ taken into custody was the 
strike leajier, Max Adelman, who 
had fled to (Wisconsin. The strikers 
and their friends insisted they would 
prevent the) reopening of the plant 
picket lines and the cor- 
obtained an injunction 
against such procedure. The sheriff 
said Ihe was prepared to deal with 
any act of violence. This is another 
C. I. |b. strike, and Governor Horner 
of Illinois! gained no glory in hi3 
efforts' to settle it. 

Among (the many strikes in the 
Detroit district was one of 150 em- 
ployees, mostly girls, of the largest 
store in Detroit. They 
extend the strike to all 
of the company there, 
keeping the big store 
cldsed by the sit-down method. 

Japan Jja'd two strikes that at a 
distance |seemed amusing^ A large 
number of j geisha girls struck for

Well-Dressed at Little Cost 

f T WAS some job, Ladies of- - 
f The Sewing Circle, to get 
these three lovelies together to 
pose for the camera this week. 
They're under the strict tutelage 
of Dame Fashion just now, learn- 
ing the latest lessons on how to be 
well turned out this Spring with- 
out benefit of a private mint. You 
ban understand, then, why the 
co-ed above, center, sort of jumped 
the gun, so to speak, and was al- 
ready on her way when the cam- 
era clicked. 

A Frock That. Clicks. 
Speaking of things clicking, 
don't think that new princess 
gown she's wearing isn't doing it 
in a big way. Can't you see from 
where you're sitting that it is 
simple to sew besides being a fig- 
ure-flatterer of the first order? 
The buttons half way and a neat 
little collar in contrast are all its 
lively lines need to complete the 
perfect balance^ — chic vs. simplic- 
ity. Take a tip from this stylish 
student arid figure it out for your- 
self fii cashmere or velveteen. 
The style is 1202 and it can be 
had in sizes 12-20 (30-38). Size 
14 requires i% yards of 39 inch 
material plus % yard contrasting.

dainty and rather picturesque lit- 
tle frock for she believes you'll 
pe interested in this style as a 
fitting gesmre to Springtime. Es- 
pecially in a modern print, fea- 
turing, say, pussycats or deep-sea 
lowers, would this frock be 
empting. The skirt is bias-cut 
or artistic reasons, and the dr- 
ies of contrast aid and abet its 
racefulness. Let -yourself go 
Tint then, come Spring. Style 
257 is designed in sizes 12-20 (30- 
bust). Size 14 requires 4% 
ards of 39 inch material. Elev- 
n yards of bias binding is re- 
uired for trimming as pictured.

found themselves unable to pro-

of lack of funds with which to 
purchase gasoline and oil. They 
looked up the mayor, who helped 
them out, and promised to remit 
as soon as they could locate some-

gether with an expression of 
gratitude the couple mailed the 
amount expended for gasoline and

is wondering why his radio didn't 
work before, when it withstood; a 
fire and a crowbar — and now 
\Vorks.. He had left it at a garage 
for repairs, and in the meantime 
the garage was destroyed by fire. 
The radio was in the fire and 
made up part of the scrap iron, 
ashes, and debris left for .the 
.clean-up men. To make way for 
a new building the work of clear- 
ing away the mess was started 
immediately. One of the men ^at- 
tacked what he thought to be a 
lump of ice with a crowbar, ram- 

set by leaving it on a stove until 
it became smoking hot, . he con- 
nected it. It still worked.

Washington.— It has always been 

said that politics makes strange 

bedfellows. Histo- 

Strange , ry has shown this 

Bedfellowt statement to be 
| :. true because In 
every political battle one can note 
unusual combinations, odd types 
working together, personal enemies 
fighting side by side— in truth, bed- 
fellows for the time being. 

Never has the truth of this old 
adage been better demonstrated, 
however, than in the current politi- 
cal fight that was precipitated by 
President Roosevelt's demand that 
congress pass! a law which will al- 
low the Chief Executive to add six 
new members to the Supreme court 
of the United States. The real con- 
gressional fight on the President's 
bold move has not yet gained full 
headway. But time enough has 
elapsed since Mr. Roosevelt offered 
his history-making demand for 
power to add enough judges to the 
Supreme court, judges of his own 
selection, to give him a majority, 
that those close to the congressional 
scene are now in a position to pre- 
dict probably the most heated con- 
troversy sin'ce the days immediately 
preceding the Civil war. ■ 

Already, it can be stated, one can 
see senators ; and representatives 
who are known for their liberal 
views standing side by side j with 
hard-boiled Iconservatives in opposi- 
tion to the president's plan, which 
they describej as a move "toj pack 
the Supreme :court." Likewise one 
can see conservative ' Democrats 
from the old S°uth following Presi- 
dent Roosevelt and joining hands 
secretively jwith the wildest radicals 
in the senate.- One will see Demo- 
crats and conservative Republicans 
in earnest| conversation planning 
ways and means to halt the 1 Presi- 
dent's drive for control of the court 
and at the same time one- can see 
radical Republicans planning! with 
Democrats : in support of the 1 pro- 
gram—strange bedfellows, every 
one. ; 

While this condition is. interesting, 
it is by far less striking as I watch 
the proceedings than the' extreme 
bitterness that is now developing. 
While,- as I said, the controversy is 
hardly under way, there is ; even 
now personal animosity evident in 
the senate Jtoj a degree that I never 
have seen jbefore. I had the privi- 
lege of observing the famous 
League of j Nations fight at close 
range. There was personal bitter- 
ness in that senate battle. Old 
friendshipsj were crushed and close 
relationships j torn asunder. Yet, I 
think that I the current controversy 
is likely to cause the League of Na- 
tions bitterness to pale into insig- 
nificance, jln other words, there lies 
ahead-For the congress a raging fire 
that is bo|und to destroy political 
lives and political ambitions. Which 
lives and which ambitions depend, I 
think, upon ^he answer which the 
country's citizens, give to the now 
direct question: 

Are we to have a system of courts 
and judges, independent and free of 
politics, or are we to have puppets 
that will do the bidding of political 
masters? I 

] • • • 

I said above that the result of the 
Supreme court battle in congress 
,. J will be deter- 

Up to the mined by the atti- 
People tude of the coun- 
[ try. It is vital that 
the citizens realize this fact. Since 
President Roosevelt made no men- 
tion during the campaign for re- 
election in 1936 of j plans to reform 
the Supreme court, there has been 
no public expression on the subject. 
There will hot be another opportu- 
nity for the voters! to express their 
views ' until '■. November, 1938. The 
only Way, then, open to those who 
want to express an opinion for or 
against the court change is by send- 
ing, their views to their congress- 
men and senators. Conversations 
that I _have| had with members of 
the house and the senate convinces 
me that the representatives and 
senators will appreciate word as to 
how their constituents feel. 

Further evidence of the desire of 
congressmen and senators to know 
the feelings ;of the voters is given in 
the tremendous propaganda that is 
going on. Friends and foes of the 
Supreme court reform program are 
on the air nightly;' scarcely a day 
goes by that some senator and usu- 
ally several of them and numerous 
congressmen participate in debate 
or issue statements concerning the 
great pontrdversy, and from the tre- 
mendous "source of propaganda sup- 
ply at the command of the Presi- 
dent come countless statements and 
interviews and radio speeches prais- 
ing the President's plan. Even the 
President himself has made one of 
his famous | "fireside chats" telling 
why he should be given the new 
power. ! 

In the meantime — and some more 
strange bedfellows— we find the 
most peculiar cross currents operat- 
ing. Among some of the religious 
groups, there are many who fear 
that the court packing plan will void 
constitutional guarantees of re- 
ligious freedom. They fear even- 
tual control of the churches by the 
state, having in mind, no doubt 
what has ' happened to religious 

groups in Germany and Soviet Rus- 
sia, j j| |. 

Editorials from the Catholic press 
are jbeing' circulated privately 
among many legislators! and against 
these {are some Protestant preach- 
ers who [take the position that the 
Supreme court is out of date and 
ought | to: be reformed. | Numerous 
Jewish |eaders are opposing the re- 
form but among the Jews are many 
who feel that President Roosevelt 
is righ'tj • 

Then tiere is the split among the 
farm [leaders: I refer to .farm or- 
ganizations with national', spokes-

which, dictators may walk. To il- 
lustrate! the type of statements com- 
ing forth from observers of national 
reputation as regards this point, I 
am going .to quote from a recent ex- 
pression |by the distinguished colum- 
nist, jWestbrook Peglerj Lately he 
wrote: [| I 

"All of a -sudden, Mr. Roosevelt 
discovers that the Supreme court is 
largely j senile and demands quick 
action on a proposal which, if adopt- 
ed, would create an easy precedent 
for the most cynical packing of the 
Supreme court by someone of the 
type |of JHuey Long or Warren Hard- 
ing, Mussolini or Hitler] in years to 
come, iit might not be many years 
either!/ . . All dictators pack the 
courts~*fcy legal means as a pre- 
liminaryj to the promulgation of 
theu-| dictatorial laws. After that it 
is comparatively easy tio take over, 
because the courts belong to the 
dictator and do as he orders." 

There can be no question, of 
course, that the thing I Mr. Roose- 
velt |proposes ,to have congress do 
for him! lis legal. Since,] however, it 
is legal j in this instance, it will be 
legal,- of course, for someone else 
to come along after Mr. Roosevelt 
and pack; the court witt men of his

sires them to decide. . j There is no

As the fight of packing the Su- 
preme 'court waxes warmer, one 

ft ' ■# t can not nel P not " 
They Make jn g how even 

Mistakes clever politicians 
make mistakes. 
There are many who believe that 
Mr. Roosevelt made a grievous er- 
ror in proposing revision of the Su- 
preme court in the fasljion he chose 
while there. are others who say that 
he was elected by such a tremen- 
dous majority that he will have the 
people behind him regardless of the 
charaoter, of proposition advanced 
to congress. I 

It is interesting to note how many 
congressmen and senators are dodg- 
ing ;the' issue. Their silence is posi- 
tively thunderous because they do 
not [know, how the people back home 
feel aloiit the general proposition. 
There are others who have come 
out| boldly for one reason or an- 
other :n {[support of the plan and 
there are some 33 or | more in the 
senate who have determined their 
position already and are ready to 
figlit t) the finish to stop passage 
of such a 1 ! law. ' [ 

Then there was the mistake which 
Senator Robinson of Arkansas, the 
Democ ratic leader, made in the sen- 
ate 1 the other day. He vigorously 
deriouriceii what he termed propa- 
ganda | and a conspiracy to defect 
the President's plan. He called at- 
tention toj much newspaper and edi- 
■ torial ioriiment in opposition and ac- 
cused all |of those people indiscrimi- 
nately with being part of a gigantic 
conspiracy against the court pack. 
The humor of the Robinson out- 
burst seemed not to be apparent to 
the otherwise kindly mannered sen- 
ator' whom I very much admire. 
What lejdid by an hour-long attack 
in j the : senate was to Ire-emphasize 
all; Of tbe criticism of the Presi- 
dent's plan. I 

One might refer in] this connec- 
tion- sls(| to the explosive type, of 
speech made by Harry Hopkins, re- 
lief a&rrjinistrator. Of course, ev- 
eryone knows that Mrl Hopkins has 
made|his life's work that of looking 
after suffering humanity. _He is on 
the government pay roll in such a 
job. Mr. Hopkins attacked all op- 
po'sitionjjto the President's plan be- 
cause! he said it was in the interest 
of! humanity to do so. The relief 
administrator made his appeal di- 
rect to all of those receiving federal 
money through relief rolls and that

Gas, Gas All 


Eat or Sleep 

"The gas on my stomach was so bad 
I could not eat or [sleep. Even my 
heart seemed to hurjt, . A friend sug- 
gested Adlerika. The first dose I took 
brought me relief. {Now I eat as I 
wish, sleep fine and never felt better." 
•—Mrs. Jas. Filler. ! 

Adlerika acts on BOTH upper and 
lower bowels while ordinary laxatives 
act on the lower bowel only. Adlerika 
gives your system al thorough cleans- 
ing, bringing out old,] poisonous matter 
that you would not believe was In your 
system and that has | been causing gas 
•pains, aour stomach; nervousness and 
headaches for months. 

Dr. B. L. Skoub, JVew York, report*. 
"tn addition to Intestinal cUanrtng, Adlerika 
greatly Tedncet bacteria] and colon bacilli." 

Give your bowels a REAL cleansing 
with Adlerika and see how good' you 
feel. Just one spoonful relieves GAS 
and constipation. [At all Leading

Nature designed the kidneys to do 8 
marvelous job. Their task is to keep the 
flowing blood Btream free of an excess of 
toxle impurities. The set of living — Ufa

natter the kidneys must remove from 
the Hood If good health Is to endure. 

When tbe kidneys' fail to function as 
Nature intended, there Is retention of 
waste that may cause body-wide dis- 
tress. One may suffer nagging backache, 
persistent headache, attacks of dizziness, 
getting up nights, swelling, puRtness

Scotch Miner Now Power in 
Councils of C. I. O. 

\TEW YORK. — Spokesman 
■1- P> and champion pf labor in 
what one correspondent calls 
','a new era in capital-labor re- 
lations in the United States" is 
Philip Murray, seasoned, weath- 
ered labor battler, but also ne- 
gotiator and pacifier'for three' 
presidents. j 

i. .Heading the steel workers' organ- 
izing committee, he met Benjamin 
Fl Fairless, president of the Carne- 
gie-Hlinois. corporation,; in a confer- 
ence which resulted in an epochal 
Agreement between labor and the 
steel industry. 

1 JAt eighteen, Philip 1 Murray 
punched the weighmaster in the 
hose and started a small civil war 
in] Westmoreland county, Pa. At 
fifty, a powerful, mostly off-stage 
figure in the rise of the C! I. O., 
he talks it over. He has said many 
•times that, after punching the 
weighmaster, he learned to keep 
his temper. That was; his only un- 
disciplined outbreak. ; 

! As .-a bay, he was a miner in his 
native Lanarkshire, Scotland. The 
family removed to America when 
he was sixteen. He was in the pit 
[for the Keystone Coal & Coke com- 
pany. The nose-punching episode 
lifd the 600 miners to make him 
president of their newly organized 
lijcal of the United Mine Workers ol 
^America. This started his career 
,as a labor leader. He educated 
!hlmself by a correspondence course. 

J He moved along up with John L. 
ewis and Thomas Kennedy, now 
lieutenant governor of Pennsylva- 
nia, in both the strife; and strategy 
ojt the organization. All three were 
Vjigorpus foes* of the j left-wingers, 

3nd some of their stiffest fights were 
l their own ranks. 
If "vertical" unionism leads to a 
eformation of American labor, for 
jjbod or ill, this triumvirate will 
figure in the history books as its 
founder. ! 

J President Wilson made Philip 
Murray a member of. his war labor 
Board. In 1921, President Harding 
used him to sidetrack a civil war in 
Wingo county, W. Vai, with 10,000 
miners in revolt. 

A big, bulky, deliberate man, with 
a bit of the old Scotch burr in his' 
ijpeech, master of flawless gram- 
mar and diction, he ;can still de- 
liver a verbal punch, jbut restrains 
his powerful fist, although he is an 

tager boxing fan. 
He is married and has an eight- 
en-year-old son. ; His! salary as an 
Cicial of the U. M. W. A. is $9,000 
year. i 

. . . .! 
King's Panfs-Putter-On. 
EFORE the abdication of Ed- 
■ ward VIII, the British court of 
claims, sitting with full-bottom wigs 
and mediaeval court uniforms, set- 
tled some pretty difficult business, 
I laming, among .other coronation 
iignitaries, the official pants-putter- 
>n for the king. Then, when Ed- 
vard quit the throne, they had to 
jo through it all again, preparing 
for the coronation of George VI. 
| Britannia, rules the waves and 
sometimes waives the rule. The 
crisis is past, as Lord Ancaster 'is 
awarded the king's pajamas, in- 
stead of the legally stipulated night 
robe as part of his cut in the coro- 
nation ceremony. 

iHe will also get the king's bed and 
yards of crimson velvet^ — priced 
at S7.M at the time of King Rich- 
ard's decree touching thereon in 
1377, and now worth $381.60. 

The lord great chamberlain. Lord 
Ancaster outranks Prime Minister 
fetanley Baldwin. His counsel 
pressed his claims before the court, 
(winning all of them except the tra- 
ditional box in Westminster abbey 
knd accepting gracefully the obvi- 
ously necessary compromise on the 
' iajamas. The founding fathers 
adn't foreseen : pajamas, but it 
as all interpreted in the spirit of 
g Richard's instrument. 

Lard Ancaster wins the right to 
arry the king's coiffe and "to 
dress him in shirt, stockings and 
drawers." Here he wins out over 
the marquis of Cholmondeley (pro- 
nounced Chumley), tbe former lord 
great chamberlain, who, by ancient 
custom, had to resign along with 
King Edward. 

The marquis of Lincolnshire is the 
third great peer to share the above 
honors and emoluments, the office 
rotating among the three families. 

In 1905, Lord Ancaster, who had 
not yet succeeded to his title, mar- 
ried the strikingly beautiful Eloise 
Breese of New York, daughter of 
the late L. W. Breese. She became 
the chatelaine of the ancient castles 
of-Drummond and Grimsthorpe. 

Of the Tuxedo aristoi, she was the 
possessor of a large fortune, a 
sportswoman and a Sag member of 
the New York Yacht club. She liv- 
ened np the old castles a lot, with 
her blooded horses and dogs, later 
gaining fame in salmon fishing. Ru- 
inous taxes compelled Lord Ancas- 
ter to sell his principal estate it> 
1921. He is sixty-nine.

Don't Try to "Save" onlfome 
Remedies— Ask Your Doctor 

There is one point, on which prac- 
tically all doctors agree. That is: 
Don't, give yoar child unknown remedies 
without asking your doctor first. 

AH mothers know this.- But some- 
times the instinct to save a few 
pennies' by buying "something just 
as good" overcomes caution. 

When it comes to the widely used 
children's remedy — "milk of mag- 
nesia" — many doctors for over half 
a century have said "PHILLIPS." 
For Phillips' Milk of Magnesia .is the 
standard of the world. Safe for chil- 

Keep this in mind, and say "PHIL- 
when you buy. Comes now, also in 
1 tablet form. Get the form you prefer. 
But see that what you get is labeled 
"Genuine "Phillips' Milk of Mag- 
nesia." 25 jf for a big box of the tablets
